Coughing and feeling dizzy

Hi all,

Hoping you might be able to help. I’m a 30 year old male.

Around 3-4 weeks ago, I had a vertigo ‘attack’ for the first time in my life where I was very dizzy but still able to walk during it, it lasted 10-15 seconds then went away. Then every day since I had been getting the same ‘attacks’ 3-4 times a day. One of the days I had a bad attack where I woke up dizzy for around an hour and only ibprofen and sleep would get rid of it. I haven’t had an ‘attack’ now for 4 days but have continued to have ‘lightheadedness’ with the feeling of a dizzy attack coming on.

With this, I have noticed extreme fatigue where I wake up tired. I have been having around 10 hours sleep a day and still tired.

For the past 6-8 weeks I have had this recurring cough with white phlegm but no other symptoms.

I have also been feeling a bit sick in the stomach as well and some diarhorea of a morning but that has now gone away.

I have seen my doctor, and she ‘thinks’ it could be viral labrinthitis but has ordered a blood test.

I suffer from TMJ and have 4-5 months ago been through 3 dental surgeries (which had complications - infections) and as such had been on 7 courses of antibiotics.

Due to my TMJ I have (as long as I can remember) had tinitis (high pitched) which i could really only hear in a quiet room. I notice now my tinitis is a little louder (high pitched) and my ears seem to pop every now and then.

When the doctor looked into my ears, she said that my left ear has a lot of ear wax, and my right ear looked ‘cloudy’.

Hoping you might be able to shed some light on this problem.
