I went for a pre-hearing test at my local health centre and was told that ear pain is not a symptom of Meneirs disease? I have all the classic symptoms of Meneirs (dizziness, vertigo, nausea and tinnitus) but I also get shooting/stabbing pains in ears occasionally. I was told by the nurse who performed the test that this is not a Meneirs symptom?
During the test while wearing special headphones a whooshing noise was introduced into my good (left) ear. During the process I experienced a sharp pressure like pain in my right ear (not due to the whooshing noise I don't think). This happened again, only worse and I had to take the ear phones off. The nurse couldn't understand this because she said that she had not introduced any sounds into this ear at the time? This had me baffled too and I'm now left confused! I assured her that the pain was real but she couldn't explain why.
Hoping that this can be explained to me during my official ENT appointment. Has anyone experienced anything simmilar?
