For 5 days now I have had the following symptoms: headaches (sometimes severe) in back of neck/head with sharp pain on right side in the back of head, nausea, dizziness when standing up, heavy legs and slight imbalance. A week before that I complained about my right ear aching and pressure which felt like it was blocked. I have Stage 3-4 Non Hodgkins Follicular Lymphoma and was evaluated 2 days ago by a PA at the Cancer center and they said they think it is vertigo. I don't feel they are correct and I continue to have the symptoms. Anyone have similar symptoms that have been diagnosed (even if disregarding the lymphoma)

Welcome to the forum.
So sorry to hear you have cancer, tough to deal with.
This other issue could be anything from an inner ear infection, to a pinched nerve in your neck, to the stress of the cancer diagnosis.
I think a visit to your family doctor or ENT will help clear it up.
