  • tinnitus, characterized by a buzzing or ringing in the ear
  • loss of balance
  • vertigo
  • nausea and vomiting
  • difficulty focusing the eyes
  • loss of hearing in a high-frequency range in one ear

In rare cases, complications may include permanent hearing loss.

  • respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis
  • stomach viruses
  • viral infections of the inner ear
  • herpes viruses
  • infectious organisms, such as that causes Lyme disease
  • bacterial infections, including the middle ear bacterial infections

There is an increased risk of developing labyrinthitis for those who:

  • smoke
  • are habitually fatigued
  • have a history of allergies
  • drink large quantities of alcohol
  • take some prescription medications
  • are under extreme stress
  • take over-the-counter medications

Preventive Measures of Labyrinthitis

  • trying to avoid germs during the cold and flu season.
