All vistibular tests ARE good nothing wrong with my brain or anything like that. I had labyrinthitis since February but he said it's gone now. Blurry vision still and dizzy depersonalization, anxiety?
I've had labyrinthitis for 2 months (I think) I've had symptoms of it but diagnosed with it finally a few weeks ago. How long does it last?
Varies: Unfortunately, it may last for six months or more, but it usually resolves sooner than that. No cure that works for everyone. Try ginger tea for the nausea.

Don't drive until you are well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
