hi

Such headaches can occur due to some intra-cranial pathologies,especially in the pesterior cranial fossa. It can also affect the ear functions. At your age,such symptoms are not expected and i suggest you should get a ct scan of brain done straight away.
Take analgesic tablets to get temporary relief though.

Thanks.

HI
IT SEEMS DUE TO ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS. I DONT FEEL YOU HAVE ANY ORGANIC DISEASE IN THE EARS . YOU SHOULD CALM DOWN,RELAX. GET YOUSELF DE-STRESSED. TALK TO A COUNSELLOR. IF REQUIRED START ON ANTI ANXIETY DRUGS.

Hi and welcome to questiondoctors.com
These are symptoms of vertebrobasilar insufficiency.. Means your basilar arteries are not delivering enough blood to your brain due to a problem in the neck mostly cervical vertebrae ..you can get a duplex over those arteries or MRI to recognize the pathology causing it

hello there
you seem to be in lot of stress and pain. consult a psychiatrist at the earliest if you haven’t till now. For pain relief,temporarily you can take analgesic tablets but to prevent such panic attacks in future you need some medicines to be taken.
