Blocked nose ,dizziness

I have got bad cold and when I try clearing my nose with some force, feel a kind of dizziness and sensation around my right ear. Find hard to stand for few seconds.

Is this cause of concern??.. Should I go see a doctor??

nose and ear are interconnected, any change in pressure of nose gets transferred to ear. forceful blowing of nose causes pressure changes in ear and can causes stimulation of inner ear. though this is not common, in some individuals with hypermobile ear bones it can happen. treatment of primary problem in your nose is the solution for this problem. take symptomatic treatment with antihistamine decongestant tablets, nasal drops or consult nearby ENT specialist
