After the birth of my second child, I started getting really sensitive to noise. I developed an upper respiratory cold for 2 months with a chronic cough that eventually subsided.
After the cold ended, my ears started ringing for brief seconds and felt like they were equalizing. I also became very sensitive to sound. Kids yelling, forks & knives clanging made me cringe.
Then I started getting positional vertigo on my right ear with extremely bad headaches. The headaches felt like they were deep in my left ear. My left ear also feels full at times. I wake up with it full but it dissipates throughout the day. There is also faint tinnitus but I've always had that under conditions of stress. I also developed panic attacks again around this time.
Previously I suffered and still do suffer from GAD.
I went to an ENT and he performed the hearing test twice and both times it was normal. He does not believe I have Menieres. I have read that some people go undiagnosed.
The BPPV was treated but I still have this constant off balance feeling and when I haven't eaten or feel really stressed by ear feels full again like a headache is coming and then I start to feel really off balance. In the background, I am always slightly off balance.
I am trying to figure if this could be stress, residual BPPV although BPPV was in my right ear and this is in my left. Or if it could be some residual issues from the cold I had or maybe it is menieres.
