How to treat it
As the NHS explained, the symptoms of labyrinthitis usually subside within a few weeks.
“Treatment involves drinking plenty of fluid to avoid becoming dehydrated, bed rest, and medication to help you cope better with the symptoms,” explained the health site.
Labyrinthitis is usually caused by a viral infection, in which case antibiotics will not help. But a person will be offered antibiotics if their doctor thinks their infection is bacterial, said the health body.
If the symptoms persist past three weeks, a person may need to be referred to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist.
