labrynthitis

I have been diagnosed with labrynthitis and have had a sensation of losing my balance for some three weeks. There were and are no other symptoms. It is worrisome as I have actually fallen on a number of occasions. The imbalance is with respect to positional changes - particular if I tip my head backwards or to the right - and very much so I change from prone to standing and vice versa. My doctor offers nothing but the usual "it's a virus" and it will take as long as it takes. All of this is well and good but what causes this. I am particularly interested in whether it could be stress related and I really blew my top the day before this occurred and am curious as to whether that has an impact. Signed, Tipsy Turvey

I have had this now for about 5 weeks. It started with strep throat. I got adjusted at the chiropractor, and seems somewhat better today. Read the archives, maybe you can find some answers there.

Hi, Julie.

Listen to Jennifer.

EVERYTHING is related, more or less, to stress. See the article on the home page.

We docs have a tradition of seeming omnicient by saying that anything we do not understand is probably caused by a "virus". Since no one yet knows what causes this, and nothing can yet be done about any virus, you would be wise to look at the other causes.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
