Chronic Labyrinthitis Symptoms
Depends: Depending on the underlying diagnosis/condition that is causing your labrynthitis, the time frame of resolution will be different. Usually viral issues are the most common and will resolve in a week or so. Medications may help decrease the time frame to resolution as well of course. Best wishes.
Vestibular disorder: Labyrinthitis is also referred to as vestibular neuronitis and refers to a disorder of the inner ear. Symptoms include: abnormal sensation of movement (vertigo) difficulty focusing the eyes because of involuntary eye movements dizziness hearing loss in one ear loss of balance, such as falling toward one side nausea and vomiting ringing or other noises in the ears (tinnitus) I hope this helps.
Depends: If due to a virus it is typically self limiting. Dizziness is tough to deal with. Medications given to supress vertigo like meclezine can produce drowsiness and other symptoms. Follow up exam with the doctor is usually advised if the cause is infectious. Sometimes one needs to see an ENT or neurologist with this condition depending on the cause and clinical course.
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. Other substances that may help include Vinpocetine 40 mg/day from a health food store, and Piracetam 4.8 gm twice/day from an on-line overseas pharmacy. Don't drive until you are well.See 1 more doctor answer

Labyrinthitis. Was diagnosed 5 days ago, could it be something else with similar symptoms, would you recommend a follow up visit as am no better.?
Maybe, maybe not: Labyrinthitis can be diagnosed with certain hearing and vestibular function tests. Often the diagnosis is based solely on symptoms. In that case where you have not had these diagnostic tests and are still worried, see an ENT doctor to obtain the proper diagnostic testing.

Assuming labyrinthitis. 1 time vertigo, some dizziness, tinnitus. This is my 4th week, when can I expect the tinnitus to go away? Other symptoms gone.
See an ENT: Labyrinthitis is associated with severe vertigo and hearing loss. If you have acute hearing loss (tinnitus is a sign of hearing loss), steroids can help, but are best administered in the first week. There may be some options for injection of the steroids into your middle ear at this point. But you need an audiogram first to know what your hearing is. Time is of the essence to see an ent!See 1 more doctor answer
I have recently been suffering from both labyrinthitis and pulsatile tinnitus in the last two weeks, are these conditions linked or possibly both symptoms of something else?
Vestibular dysfunct.: Vestibular neuritis and labyrinthitis result from infection in the inner ear or the nerves connecting the inner ear to the brain. This disrupts transmission of sensation from ear to brain. Vertigo, dizziness, and difficulties with balance, vision, or hearing may result. Migraine usually adds pain to the equation, but vertigo may also create nausea and vomiting.See 1 more doctor answer
Uncompensated labyrinthitis, I have pressure and slight dizziness in my head. Kind of weird vision like my eyes are strained, normal symptoms?
Can labyrinthitis and migraines cause the same symptoms? I see a neurologist Monday but can't see an ENT yet. Pressure in my head constant ringing ear
Migraine vertigo: Both migraine and labrynthitis can cause vertigo, however the pressure in the ear sensation is not normally seen with migraine. Labrynthitis can be a sudden onset very severe vertigo that can last weeks. Migrainous vertigo is usually more of a constant dizziness, and sometimes a little less severe. The neurologist should be able to distinguish between these. They also have different treatments.
ENT said not labyrinthitis, hearing test monday, muffled hearing in my left ear, super scared it's acoustic neuroma. All symptoms except numbness.
Asymmetric hearing: Asymmetric hearing may be due to multiple etiologies: infectious, Meniere's, membrane rupture, autoimmune, medication, tumor. An audiogram followed by an ABR (auditory brainstem response) with asymmetry is reasonable. An MRI may be warranted pending evaluation also. Acoustic neuromas are rare even with the associated symptoms however should be evaluated.
