Alternative Treatments For Viral Labyrinthitis
I have labyrinthitis in the right ear. I have used prednisolone and my hearing has not returned. Would alternative treatment like acupuncture work?
I still get vertigo mostly after a cold since my first bout of labyrinthitis 15 years ago. Should I seek VTR treatment? Is my vestibularnerve damaged?
Vertigo is Rx: Dizziness is, as many symptoms, has multiple causes, I needed to know what was the first reason, and how it was treated. usually it has to do with the ear, I would treat for sinusitis 14 course and treat with anti vertigo medication during the day is different than at night and usually I had little or no recurrence in young people. ...Read more
Inflammation: The suffix "itis" on the end of words means inflammation. The labyrinth is a structure in the region of the middle ear which helps you to maintain your balance. When it becomes inflamed (by infectious or other causes) you may have severe dizziness with nausea and vomiting resulting.

6 weeks after viral labyrinthitis, my balance has returned and my hearing has come back to around 80%. How long until it's back to 100%? Heard 3momths
Well, if you HEARD: So if you HEARD "3 months" by Jobe! You're RIGHT! By your hearing is coming back. I like 3 months as an average for most people to feel back to normal. It could be sooner..it could be later...or there could be a permanent residual depending on the severity of the attack you suffered. Stay in touch with your doctor and audiologist.

Is it possible to get vestibular labyrinthitis or neuritis (viral or bacterial) from going out of the country? Possible? Thank you
VARIABLE: Perhaps the worst period of time is the first 2 or 3 days, and gradually will subside over 7-14 days. If treated with anti-virals and symptomatic agents, such as those for nausea, vomiting, and dizziness, should feel quite a bit better as healing ensues. An otolaryngologist is a good source for support for this problem. ...Read more
Surgical trauma: Labyrinthitis by definition is an inflammation of the inner ear. The inner ear has both the organ for hearing (cochlea) and the organs of balance. Bacterial infections of the labyrinth are very rare and life-threatening. The cause of inner ear inflammation is usually viral but can certainly follow middle ear or inner ear surgery. Middle ear infections can also penetrate into the inner ear. ...Read more
Had viral labyrinthitis ugh! 10 days ago; recovered with medication, but a few days later my IBS returned. Did all that vomiting awaken the ibs?
I have daily nausea, dizzy spells, general weakness, anxiety, hypoglycaemia for 2 years following viral labyrinthitis. No doctor has helped. help!
Difficult.: If treated early with antiviral such as Acyclovir,famcyclovir, valacyclovir, these will shorten the viral shedding and may prevent auditory and vestibular damage. Steroids like Methylprednisolone decrease the inflammation and benzodiazepines can also help with anxiety and dizzy spells. Unfortunately, in spite of best efforts ,residual neurological symptoms persist. Symptomatic treatment continues. ...Read more

Can depersonalization cause anger and last all day? I've had it most of the day since physical therapy for compensation of labyrinthitis. Is this really anxiety? I feel like I'm going nuts.
Depersonalization is: the result of severe psychological decompensation, usually because of high repression of stressors. It causes the world to look robot-like, or estranged--not personal. You may feel like a robot yourself, which can't be helped by labyrinthitis, which is a vestibular condition (probably physical). After the physical symptoms subside, seek out a therapist who can help you re-integrate feelings. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
