In brief: Time
Labyrinthitis is an inflammation of your balance centers.
It is usually self limited and improves with time. We treat the symptoms so the patients find relief until the inflammation goes away which is usually several days. If the vertigo does not go away it needs to be reevaluated as there might be another scenario. Any hearing loss needs to be evaluated immediately!

In brief: Time
No cure, must let your body deal with the inflammation on its own.
Sometimes steroids help, but only during or immediately after the onset of the labyrinthitis.

In brief: Inflamed labyrinth
Superior canal dehiscence syndrome (scds) is a newly described condition in which vestibular symptoms such dizziness can be provoked by loud sounds.
It usually does not respond to medications and symptoms gets worse. It is diagnose by ct scan of temporal bone and abnormal vestibular neurological test such as severe dysequilibrium, positional dizziness and blood pressure changes. Treated by surger.

SCDS is a completely different diagnosis than labyrinthitis. Please do not comment on areas that you do not have expertise in. Thank you.
