    hi although my symptoms were ther same as yours i wasnt bed ridden but because i am a life patient at the ENT i got in within a couple of days after reading up loads on the symptoms i basically self diagnosed and was right with labyrinthitis but my dizzyness only really lasted about 10 days however i found the exorcises on the internet for the illness along with i think its called minieres disease( forgive the spelling) worked as its the crystals in the inner ear that become lodged and need help to move again well i have now not had another spell like that for about 2 yrs now however i have been told by the consultant it could come back at anytime and last for afew years think positive read up when your eyes stop wobbling haha it may help

      well i suffer with my ears anyway from when i was about 4, many moons ago but yes my hearing went very dull and sinuses blocked try this let me know if it helps sit in the middle of your bed so that when you lie down your head will hang over the edgesit up straight then lie down pretty quick and hang your head over and turn ya head to the right hold that position for about 30 seconds (if you can) then repeat to the left fixate your eyes on smething level with your head whilst in that position its better if your husband or whoever helps lower you down aswell then fix your eyes on him just repeat a couple of times dont expect miricles straight away be positive what i said to myself was it cant make me feel any worse than what i do at the minute

    Try to find an Otalaryngologist instead a plan ENT. Antibiotics don't work and the solumedoll pack doesn't work either. The dr said they would just upset your stomach. Try to find one and maybe put your name on a list for cancelation list. He said it has a lot to do with the weather. I have Terrible tinnitus in the right ear. But kind of getting use to it. Hang in there. Believe me I know what your going through. No one you talk to understands what your going through. It's very depressing. You will get better.. Do what the dr says. Last visit he had to insert a tube in my ear to release the pressure.
