Labyrinthitis is an inner ear condition that affects adults between the ages of 30-60. Most cases are viral, and the symptoms will disappear within a few weeks. However a small number of cases are bacterial.
In Bacterial Labrynthitis long term inner ear damage is more common, therefore the symptoms will continue. In these cases a therapy called Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is sometimes used. There are also medications that can help keep the symptoms under control. You will need to speak with your Doctor about the treatment that they feel is appropriate for you.
