For about 2 weeks now, 1 time each week I have experienced sudden hearing loss in my right ear and with this I have vertigo to the point the room starts spinning and I can't hardly stand up to walk without holding on to the wall I lean very far over to the right uncontrollably. This will last approx. 30 seconds. I can tell when it is going to subside because my right ear will then start sounding like an air conditioner kicked on in it. I have been on antibiotics for an abscessed tooth on the left side for about 5 days. Its weird that this is happening on my right side and its kinda scary. Has anyone ever had this before? Can you tell me what it is?View Thread
