When I first started flying 13 years ago,I were a nervous wreck,the more frequently I flew the better I became,and getting on the plane became second nature like getting in a car or on a train.Recently,I have had a very bad case of Labyrinthitis which I seem to have recovered from,unfortunately, it has caused my fear to return.I'm really worried about how the change in pressure will affect my ear's and when the plane takes off and turn's will it cause a me to feel like I'm in a "spin". I'm due to fly again in a few months and the worry is waking me up at night with sweats and palpatations.Any advice??

Thank you Keith, I did go to see my GP and he told me by the time I fly I'll be completely recovered and should be ok. I look forward to your explanation on movements on take off

Hi Cheryl

The most important thing to do is to see your doctor

The pressure may affect your ears but shouldn't upset your balance but I am not certain of that. This is a case for the doctor, I can explain the movements on take off later to you.
