Vestibular Neuritis Treatment

About the Inner Ear

The inner ear plays a decisive role in our ability to maintain our equilibrium. When the vestibular nerve inside the ear becomes inflamed it can interfere with the body’s ability to send balance information to the brain with the result being various levels of physical and spatial disorientation. This phenomenon, called vestibular neuritis, can be frightening. However, some comfort can be taken in the knowledge that the condition is not considered terribly serious or life threatening.

Vestibular Neuritis Symptoms

Vestibular neuritis can result in a person struggling to stay upright and beset by myriad other unpleasant and downright disturbing symptoms. Those symptoms include:

  • Vertigo
  • Sudden loss of balance
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Tinnitus
  • Moderate hearing loss
  • Motion sensitivity
  • Sudden uncontrollable eye movements (nystagmus)
  • Anxiety 
  • Difficulty walking or running

Vestibular Neuritis Treatment

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for vestibular neuritis. In some cases, the brain may compensate for the new reality or the inflammation causing the problem may resolve on its own. Sometimes it may lead on to other complications.. The experts at Harley Street AVM will be able to accurately diagnose the condition and likely causes and prescribe a variety of treatments that can help relieve some of the worst symptoms so you can regain some or all of your normal balance.
