How long does labrynthitis/vestibular neuronitis last?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi guys i was diagnosed with with Labyrinthitis back in May it was the worse feeling ever i did a CT scan and everything was normal. But i did start feeling better till august. I went to a ENT and they tested my inner ear and turns out 2 of my inner ears were weak... I still get some unsteadness but not as bad as before. Also does the cold weather make things worse?? I live in las vegas and right now it is cold. When will things just go away ?

    It really depends! I have VN and mine started April 7. I'm 95% better but waiting for that last bit to come right. My ENT told me I will compensate 100%. I do have anxiety issues that he believes is holding me back. Iv heard from a lot of people around the year mark they were 100% again but of cource it can be quicker or longer. My ENT told me because I'm young it will happen

    The symptoms you have now, lesser, are a left over from the previous vestibular insult.  Vestibular rehabilitation is needed to compensate.
