Is there any possibility of recurring of Labyrinthitis ?

In Dec 2007, I was diagnosed with viral labyrinthitis that lasted for a month and a bit. They told me from the beginning that it can comeback. Now 4yrs later to date (Dec 2011), I had that same dizziness again and vertigo together with feeling sick. I only have it for 2 weeks so far and I only get the vertigo feeling when I turn my head a certain way. I didn t throw up when I got it this second time only dry heaving. I ts not as bad as the first time. I guess it s mild this time. I also get that annoying thing in my ear where it s like someone suddenly covered my ear for a second or two then that high pitch sound that also last a second or two, (5 seconds max) then it s gone. I don t always get it, just 3- 4 times a week and it spreads over the week. I usually get it in my left ear and once or twice in my right. Other than that, I m ok. All I want is to make sure that it s the labyrinthitis recurring. Could someone pls tell me? Thank you.

hello dear
thanks for your query at hcm
your having symptoms of dizziness , vertigo , and tinnitus these could be due to labrynthitis . generally labrynthitis will present in acute manner not extending over weeks of time . usually one ear is involved . It might be due to some other cause also . Physical examination by Ent specialist will help to diagnose cause for stmptoms .
