labyrinthitis

Discussion in 'Health and wellbeing' started by vikingmaid, Apr 13, 2011.

  1. I have seen GP for dizziness which he says is labyrinthitis. I have tablets to stop the intermittent motion and dizziness, these have helped but it comes and goes, getting to nearly 6 weeks. Has anyone had this and if so how long did it last.
     
  2. Unfortuatly mine has lasted 10 years on and off.
    When I first got it I couldn't stand up or move my head for about a week without being sick.I think it lasted a long while, it's not a very good thing to have when working with small children.
    I went back to work after about 4 weeks but felt ill.I now get it now and then every year or so and it lasts for about 4 days.

    I had it once and it was so annoying! I kept thinking I was better, getting out of bed and falling straight over again. I think it took me about a month in total to get rid of it, but I've heard of it taking a couple of months, especially if you fight it and try to keep going.
    Hope you feel better soon.

     
  4. Maybe that's whereIi've gone wrong! Although I haven't been sick, I've noticed lights at work and using the computer don't help. Also have not taken time off as sole in charge of a large A l thought it was going and then today it has been. My ears feel bunged and have a dizzy/woozy head. I thought I was on the mend[​IMG]

    I've got post-viral labyrinthitis at the moment - doc reckoned about 6 weeks. I think I've got a pretty mild version of it as it hasn't slowed me down. You have my sympathy!

    This is an amazing forum. Inspirational members and a great help to me when I was coming to terms with my labs.
