Labyrinthitis | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of labyrinthitis?

Symptoms of labyrinthitis can range from mild to severe. You may have symptoms as soon as you wake up in the morning, or they may occur suddenly throughout the day. Common symptoms include the following:

  • Dizziness
  • Feeling that you are spinning (also called vertigo)
  • Eye jerking (also called nystagmus)
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Hearing loss in one ear
  • Ringing in your ears (also called tinnitus)

If you have symptoms of labyrinthitis, talk to your doctor. Other conditions that are more serious can cause similar symptoms. Get medical care right away if you experience vertigo with a fever above 101˚F, fainting, convulsions, slurred speech, paralysis, double vision or severe vomiting.
