Feeling Faint... Has anyone had this...

So little back ground: I went on my honeymoon in Hawaii back in November. While I was there I eneded up in the ER because I ened up with a nasty head cold and narly ear infection in both ears. Well since I have have had that I have had these bouts of lightheadedness or faintness... I don't actually faint... But its like I just feel like I am going to... I don't even know how to explain what my ears do afterwards but, its like they plug up and its all weird sounding inside... It usually passes with in a few seconds...Then right after, I get a pain in my ear, then it goes away, and im fine again. it happens when I yawn and when i get up from bed or sitting or something.. I want to say it kinda gives me vertigo, but i had vertigo after I had this ear infection and that was more a spinny feeling... this is different. 

Have any of you ecperienced this?? I have an appointment with my doctor but just wondering what is going on...

Might just be due to blocked Eustachian tubes. I know I got dizzy and my ears were popping all the time, the dr gave me something to unclog my sinsuses. I didn't think it would work, so didn't try it for another week. Once I did though, the dizzy spells went away. I was pleasantly surprised.

Yes it can be long.  I was sick back in October. It was over a month I felt on and off like you do.  I kept taking decongestant.  It eventually went away.
