Hi..For many years, even as a child, I have severe ear infections, sinus problems, tonsilits, headaches, but I am now a 34 year old female that has chronic headaches, severe ear pressure, buzzing or something in my left ear that seems to be getting worse..I have also had several episodes of tingling in face and body, some minor weakness on left side..This seems to be getting worse, the dizziness and vertigo causes me to feel nausaus..I went to urgent care last week for this as I thought maybe another sinus inffection, but the doctor looked in my ears, throat, nose, then referred me to an ENT for evaluation for a possible acoustic neuroma..Im nervous.I am finding a hard time believing that this could all be caused by a tumor....If anyone has any further questions, please feel free to let me know..What is causing this? What will happen at the ENT Thursday? Please help...Thankyou..
Oh yeah, there are so many symtoms, it seems, I forgot that I have chronic clear ear drainage when lying down, and my vision seems to be a little off..:confused:
