Vestibular neuritis

Has anyone had this or know anything about it? Iím pretty sure itís what Iíve got as the symptoms seem to match up. Basically I had a cold/flu all last week and towards the end of the week I noticed that when changing position in bed I would have 10 seconds or so of the room spinning. Iím still getting that, and if I get up too quickly I feel dizzy when walking.

From what I can gather from reading about it, there isnít really any treatment and it should get better on its own, but could take up to 3 weeks. Iím not sure what I should be doing about work though as I guess I canít really drive. Would the doctor sign me off work? If so would I then need to report it to the DVLA?

Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

No, hearing seems to be fine. Iíve just been out for a walk, and other than feeling a bit woozy when I look over my left shoulder I coped ok.

I'm no doctor, but I believe you get, and I have had, the same sort of symptoms with blocked sinuses from a heavy cold or ear infections, both of which can play havoc with balance and give rise to giddy feelings.

Best to get a doctor to check it out, but going by my doctors, it will take the 3 weeks to get an appointment. Maybe a chemist/pharmacist could advise - they are meant to be our first port of call these days

And googling symptoms is not always a good idea - it can scare the living daylights out of you

You might want to check your sugar levels. Maybe you weren't eating properly when you had the flu.

Thanks both for the advice. Hopefully it is something simple, I’ve never experienced anything like this before after a cold though, not sure it was a fully fledged flu but it’s certainly knocked me worse than any cold has before. I don’t have to go back into the office until Tuesday, so fingers crossed it will show some improvement tomorrow so that I can drive on Tuesday. Otherwise I’ll try the pharmacy.

It could be vestibular neuronitis - the spinning episodes are usually accompanied by feeling sick and/or vomiting. Most cases settle in a week or two but with some unlucky people it can take six weeks and some very unlucky people who have it, it never 100% goes away. You shouldn't drive whilst you still have some symptoms and your GP should be able to sign you off work.

If you're getting short bursts of spinning with no other symptoms and get it when rolling over in bed, standing up, turning your head etc you could have something called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). However you're on the young side to get it as it's usually people 60 years and over who get it. That has to be diagnosed with something called the Hallpike test which your GP may or may not be used to doing. BPPV is easily treatable though with no medication!

Hope you're feeling better soon!

I have had this for years and put it down to spells of Labyrinthitis, basically an inner ear infection which crystalises the fluid in your ear tubes and affects your balance. Can happen when your sinuses are blocked as the air you breathe through your nose keeps these tubes to the inner ear clear so when nose blocks it can affect.

However I have just been diagnosed by a Neurosurgeon to be Vestibular Migraine. Sounds like you have the same symptoms. This time of year is worse for it.

Thanks Graham and Beckenham Boy. It seems a lot better today, still feeling a bit off when walking around but I don't seem to be getting the room spinning spells. Fingers crossed it doesn't come back.
