Anyone Had Labyrinthitis Before?

Thu Nov 01, 2012 9:03 pm

Since yesterday, I've been incredibly dizzy and nauseous (vertigo) and felt as if I were about to faint. I went to the doctor today and he diagnosed me with labyrinthitis, an infection of the inner ear. The prognosis was (understandably) vague, with a recovery time of anywhere between a couple of weeks to several months.

Worst case scenario would be a permanent hearing loss, but from what I've read, that is rare.

Has anyone had this before? If so, how long did it take you to recover? No medication of any kind was prescribed, since it is a viral infection.

Sucks that I can't have a normal life for a couple of weeks...
