I have been having dizzy spells upon getting out of bed in the morning. I get very mild compression type headaches (mostly pressure, like wearing a baseball cap that is too tight)on the front top right side of my head and in the right sinus area. My ears occasionally pop as well. My doctor says it is labrynthitis and also gave me antibiotics as well as Antivert(?) for the dizziness. Does this sound right? I also have weird smell some time like I am smelling burning rubber.

  • I'd say it has to do with your sinus and your ear tubes. Go to an ENT and get a second opinion. I know that feeling that you are talking about and I get that way when I have an bad sinus flareup.:o
