this article might help, there is an easy treatment, that can be repeated, it's called the Epley maneuver

Earplugs are small devices that can be inserted into the ear canal to protect the wearer from noise, dust, water or even strong winds. People sometimes wear them at night, in hospitals and during long flights to improve their sleep, but this has its drawbacks, particularly if the earplugs are used frequently.
Pushing an earplug too far into the ear canal results in an increase in the pressure of the air inside, as explained by Sound of Tinnitus. This can cause discomfort and pain during sleep and can happen unnoticed at first as the wearer turns over in bed and presses down on their ear. Foam earplugs, which expand slowly to block out noise, can steadily increase the air pressure inside the ear canal. If pressure develops and causes pain, the earplug should be slowly removed rather than pulled straight out to prevent damage to the ear drum

@Abel123,
I would rather wear ear plugs than exercise.

The vertigo may also be due to calcium bits that fall off the follicules (?) in the inner chamber and wander into one of the canals which upsets the ear's gyroscope - gives a false balance message. The brain gets different data from each ear and does not cope well. Smile A physio can evaluate that in about 5 minutes and fix it in another 10 min. Worth checking out.

@tsarstepan,
I use hard sponge ear plugs every night as my husband snores bad so that I could have a proper sleep. This type of ear plugs are very good, it's got blue string permanently attached to each other so that you don't lose the pair. I had some spare soft sponge ear plugs I got from the Chemist. I gave it to my friend to use when she went on holiday with us. As she shared the room with my husband and I, I told her that y husband snores bad, so she might like to use some ear plugs. Unfortunately, while she's got it on one evening, and decided to take it off, one of the ear plugs tore in half and the other half lodged in her ear. I had to rescue it out carefully using a tweezer. Luckily, I got it out for her with no bother. This is a warning for people using soft sponge ear plugs! Incidentally, I suffer from Vertigo myself, and have been suffering before I even started using ear plugs and live with my husband.

@klmason1025,
I am having the exact same symptoms you describe...feeling like I just got off of a boat...even when lying down! And the feeling of movement after stopping in a car, etc. Have you found a solution yet? I have myasthenia gravis, but doc says this is not related. Getting very weary of being "dizzy" or off balance all the time!

I too have been using foam ear plugs for years as my partner is a heavy snorer. Even if I'm in bed alone I've become accustomed to using them as any kind of noise prevents sleep. The only effects I get are occasionally extremely sore ears from either having them into far or pulling them out too quick. The pain can be quite excruciating. Other than that though no problems. They're a godsend for people married to snorers!!

@crestline 39,
I have suffered with occasional bout of bppv for years now which always occurs during the night. I have however learnt to manage it quite well using the Epley manuevee. I am also a regular user of foam ear plugs as I work shifts and I have noticed that they can sometimes cause some dizziness. My guess is that by pushing the plugs into the outer ear canal, it can disturb the canalith in the inner ear resulting in vertigo and dizziness. It probably doesn't take much to do this and the effect can vary from being a little bit unsteady on your feet to violent dizziness and the dreaded nystagmus (jumping of the eyes). I am going to try and limit the use of the plugs to just night shifts and see how I get on. I rather be woken by the post man than a bout of vertigo. 😀

@aperson,
just stop wearing earplugs for two or three days and leave your ear alone (donot even touch it) and don't let water go inside and donot even clean it ; for the normal ear wax(wax prevent bacteria and infection) to fix the irritation that cause this blood
and please be gentile with your ear and donot clean it daily just once every two week or even a month the inner wax is good for ear health

Okay DO NOT get the fake plugs, that are just studs.
Very lame, lol. Stretch your ears. =] If you let your ears heal properly and stretch them slowly it doesn't even hurt. I'd recommend going to a size 2 or 0. Anything much bigger starts to look bad.

@aperson,
Ear plugs can be used for protection from noise or water. These small, ear-canal shaped devices can be made of foam, plastic or wax and fit into the ear canal, according to Occupational Health & Safety, a health resource site dedicated to workplace safety. While these plugs offer benefits for those who require special protection, prolonged or incorrect use does carry some risks associated with ear plus use. Being aware of these risks can prevent you from causing damage to your ears and hearing.
