Dizziness and fluid in the ear

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In Henrico, Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating dizziness caused by fluid in the ear.

As the weather changes and allergies and colds begin, dizziness and fluid in the ear becomes a common complaint among patients.

If head congestion increases even slightly, it can affect the inner ear balance system.

It usually takes a few days to get better so be patient. However, if symptoms continue after a week or if severe or painful please see your family doctor.
