I have never heard of this but it doesn't sound pleasant at all! I'm sorry you are having to suffer with this. I have similar symptoms that come and go but I think mine are medication related.

I'm sorry I am not much help but hopefully someone will come along soon and be able to help you.

Hi - I had my first bout of labyrinthitis about 8 years ago. It gradually subsided but I had another one a couple of months ago, which I'm still feeling the effects of.

It, in my case, is damage to the inner ear. This damage causes the fluid in your ears not telling your brain when it's about to move, so causing dizziness and severe sickness.

The room spins round and it is a really awful feeling. Lucky people make a full recovery in about 8 weeks but the majority have mild to severe symptoms almost permanently. My symptoms are:

Feeling weighed down, as if gravity has got a lot stronger
Head feeling 'swimmy'
A full up feeling in the ears
A heavy head

Eye exercises can help - you must keep moving so your brain can can adjust to your 'new' ear-fluid position!

Move your head to the right and to the left, as if watching a tennis match.

Then keep your head still and just move your eyes right and left and up and down.

You should do this a few times a day - it can feel uncomfortable because you really feel you want to keep your eyes and head still, but persevere.

Best wishes to you.
