The first few months after being diagnosed I was very dizzy. It is a hard feeling to describe... it wasnt dizzy like the room was spinning but more a feeling of being off balance and feeling like my head was heavy. I am sure that sounds absurd but I dont know how else to describe it. Now that my Plaq. has kicked in I hardly ever experience that feeling and if I do it is near my monthly cycle.
A few years ago I was so dizzy (this was long before lupus) I was sure I had a brain tumor. I went to my primary dr. and he said I has so much fluid in my ear he was amazed I could stand up. Might be something to check out just to be sure. When I had that infection I never even had a slight earache despite the fluid.
Hope you feel better!
I hope you are feeling better. I also have bouts of dizziness on and off and I am sure it is lupus related. Mine usually resolves itself in a few days. Let us know how you are when you get the chance, I know how nauseating dizziness can be.
