I am having trouble with nausea and light headedness?

I am having trouble with nausea and light hotheadedness. It’s not vertigo. I have been to a cardiologist and an ENT in the past week and a half. I was told I had an inner ear infection and was given ABT and flonase at urgent care. I have felt this way for over 2 weeks and nothing has helped. My forehead is slightly “puffy” above my right eye and the right side of my face is puffy. In the past month I had a tooth removed, went into Afib and had to go to the hospital, plus the inner ear fluid and infection. I need someone to tell me why this is not getting better. I have no sinus pain, and have used the neti pot, flonase, sinutab and vaporizer. I can’t eat bc of the nausea and lightheadedness. I am not dehydrated, my blood sugar is normal, my blood pressure is normal, I drink 64 oz of fluids a day, help!

A serious inner ear infection may take up to 5 – 6 weeks to resolve. Symptoms such as nausea caused by the balance center in inner ear being infected may persist until then. Continue and complete the full course treatment. And contact your ENT if things don’t get better.
