Answer common. Make sure you see a doctor, just to be sure. If it is an ear infection Your dizziness could be caused by an ear infection, but if it is a dental problem, it is probably inflammation of the TMJ bone in your skull. I have TMJ problems myself, and I sometimes get dizzy, have pain that feels like it is inside my ear, and get headaches and jaw aches from time to time. Either way, you should go to the doctor and have it checked out, but if you have pain in your ears and jaw (and sometimes in your neck), and you feel and popping or clicking in your jaw, you may want to visit a dentist first.

Symptoms of ear infections are often obvious. They include pain in the ear, dizziness, ringing sounds and headaches. In babies, signs of ear infections include tugging on the ear.

Depends on the type of ear infection. Infections of the outer and middle ear encounter ear pain (earache) symptoms. Inner ear infections most commonly experience vertigo (dizziness with nausea and vomiting).

Signs of general infection apply such as pain, swelling, redness, discharge. Ear infections can be classified according to whether they involve the innerear, middle ear or outer ear. Inner ear infections typically cause dizziness, vertigo and nausea. Middle ear infections can cause hearing difficulty, whereas outer ear infections are typically painful. Try waggling the outer ear, if there is an established infection of the ear canal movement will be extremely painful.
