Hearing loss and dizziness are not commonly caused by ear canal problems. Significant hearing loss or vertigo may mean a more serious condition that requires medical evaluation.
Both vertigo and lightheadedness can be caused by ear canal problems, especially if these sensations occur with a viral infection or allergy symptoms. Vertigo is common with inner ear disorders, such as labyrinthitis, Ménière's disease, an injury to the ear or head, or a noncancerous growth in the space behind the eardrum (cholesteatoma).
