It appears now that it could be more than a common cold. Been to the doctor (DAME). Got all kinds of medicine. He referred me to an ENT Specialist.
Seems like a blocked Eustachian tubes problem which cause an imbalance and problems equalising.
Problem probably ear infection.
One of the solutions to give the Eustachian tubes chance to heal seems to be grommets in the eardrums to help equalise the pressure in middle ear.
My question here rather than the Med Threads is how does this effect aerobatic flying if you have such ops done?
Are there alternative solutions?
Anyone else who had/have the same problem?
See these two threads.
Don't believe what I post, research what I post....
They have a book on how to take my money away? When did this happen......

I had a disease called Minierre's Disease, or Labarynthitis.
It felt like a cold and blocked up head all the time, and periodic dizzy spells. Permanent sea sickness.
This was due to the fluid build-up in the vestibular tubes and eventual busting of the lining in the tubes which would cause the sensory hairs to move in the direction of the burst. Felt like someone would grab my head and throw it to the ground
Long story short - I am healed, flying and can do aeros and enjoy myself with a full life!
I am not saying that this is what you have! I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
I have learned a few things about my ears and what to eat and what to leave out.
Contact me if you wish.

I personally prefer a conservative approach - particularly if an operation is not reversible!
There is a good facio-max surgeon in Durbanville - Dr Grotepas - (I think he is OupaG on this forum) I would value his opinion.
