Possible ear infection? (Or brain tumor) Empty Possible ear infection? (Or brain tumor)

Whoa I haven't been on since December o:
Well hello ago! All my mice are still doing quite well, just getting old! (Unfortunately, Tulip passed recently Sad)
But anyways, back to the main topic.
Little winter recently started waltzing? This has been going on for a couple of weeks now.
I've heard that it's usually a sign of a brain tumor/Ear infection.
It was difficult to tell what exactly she was even doing at first, but now it's more noticeable.
Other than that, her behavior hasn't changed. She still eats, sleeps, and drinks fine.
I think the only real change behavioral wise is that she isn't running on the wheel nearly as much as she used to.
Could it be a infection?
What are the symptoms of a ear infection and/or brain tumor?

There's a bit on circling here: Health Packet.

Cheeseburger, a PEW girl I had 2014-2016, suddenly one morning was circling and had a head tilt. I took her to the vet where he said it could have been a few different things (see link) but he treated her for an ear infection (steroid shot and prescribed amoxicillin), though he had little hope. But she started improving within a day and slowly over the course of many months you could hardly tell anything had happened to her.

So definitely I would say vet trip is due. If it is an ear infection, they can treat it.
