I've suffered from labyrinthitis for years but am allergic to serc and can no longer take sudafedrine. Chronic stuffy nose/ears, extreme dizziness, nausea, facial tenderness/headaches. What can I do?

Your symptoms sound like its nicotine related, and your chronic taking of decongestants was masking your symptoms.

Pain/pressure in back of the head with brain 'zap' feelings, along with labyrinthitis doc gave me antivert- please help, i don't like these feelings?

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
