I've had it, and it's the worst. Luckily you only have to deal with the crazy dizzy/spinny feeling for about 2-3 days, then that will start to clear up and you will just feel funny for a few more days. After that you are golden. :)
Avoid situations that will lead to ear infections, and consider cleaning them more regularly (with ear drops like Debrox). And stop using Q-Tips daily.
I'm actually surprised you had the energy to make this post. When I had it I was stuck laying down on the couch for 3 days.
