I have just recovered from my third bout of labyrinthitis. I first had it when I was 19 a year and a half ago, it lasted for just over a month.
3 weeks ago it came back again. I immediately recognised my symtoms but went to the doctor anyway and got diagnosed with labs again. I recovered within 5 days.
I then went on with my daily life, even managing to go away for a week but as soon as I was home again it came back for yet another 5 days. I hadn't had any dizzy spells whilst I was away.
The main symptoms I get are extreme dizzyness and vomiting. The medication I am given stops the vomiting and nausea but I cannot sit up from a horizontal position which means I cannot do anything whilst I have this.
Is anyone else experiencing this coming back and repeating like this? If you are can I expect this to happen the rest of my life? Is there anything I could do to help prevent it? I'm 21 and I don't want this to affect me every few weeks, months or years so any advice from people in the same situation would be much appreciated.
