How to you get to work? You must not drive if there is any chance of having a dizzy spell. My doctor was most insistent about this when I had labyrinthitis. I certainly wasn't off for anything like 6 weeks (I think possibly 2, but it was a while ago now) - remember though we are all different. Only time will tell how long it takes for you to feel better I'm afraid. My sympathies to you - it is a horrible thing to have.
