MD or labrynthitis
« on: Dec 05 2012, 01:25 PM »
Hi Guys,

My GP is still trying to decide whether or not i have MD or Labrynthitis.

Recently i have been having day's where im deaf in my left ear, vertigo attacks at night when lying in bed, and often after eating ! It also feels like someone has put tiny balloons in my ears and inflating them  :o

These attacks dont happen every day, only thing im guaranteed to have on a daily basis is the tinnitus which affects both ears ( though never at the same time ) and can sometimes be so loud it gives me headaches...

Is it worth me insisting on seeing an ENT ? The hearing loss is really beginning to get me down. I dont go completly deaf, its more like what you would hear if your head was under water, but all the same its worrying.

Thanks for reading

Hi, if the GP has ruled out infection and the condition isn't clearing, then I would ask for an ENT referral.  You need to know what you are dealing with, so you can start the correct treatment.

I wish you well, this condition is not pleasant at all.
