I have a problem that is absolutely killing me on the inside, i am so worried and hope that anyone have more answers.

Over Christmas i was visiting some friends in brazil and on my way back to USA i slept very weird on the plane causing neck pain and a little bit of headache. I excercised when I got off the plane and realized I was getting stiff in the neck as I was shrugging my shoulders when I was running. It caused quite a heavy headache and that night I woke up with a pulsating headache that I went to the ER for. They checked pretty much everything from regular BP to a CT-Scan and a EKG. Everything looked perfect they said. They also said it was probably a change in caffein intake as I hadn't been drinking my regular amount of coffee..oh well.

Everything was dandy until yesterday when I was walking up the stairs to my apartment. As i reached the top step I felt like I was falling through the ground with my left foot, and i got dizzy. This of course charged my regular anxiety to spike through the roof and i suffered a panic attack. Now I have been dizzy since yesterday evening, but the strange thing I am worried about is that I pretty much only get dizzy when i turn my head to the right. When i turn my head to the right or shift my eyes to the right it feels like my heart "drops" or skips a beat, palpations of some kind. I also feel a sensation under my left foot as i turn my head. THis of course worried the heck out of me so I once again went to the ER.

They did all the regular checks and determined I had a enourmous amount of wax in my ear that i needed to get rid off. And that was the end of that. But hypochondriac as I am, it just doesnt seem right that I feel like im falling whenever I am turning my head or eyes to the right along with a numbing feeling under my right foot.

PLEASE can someone clarify
