Will having a MRI help in case of acute labyrinthitis?
I was diagnosed with Acute Labyrinthitus 9 weeks ago. I have been lightheaded or dizzy or felt weird and have weird vision every day. Should I have a MRI to see if more is going on with me? Life is hard as a mom, wife and tennis player with these symtoms.
hi acute labyrinthitis usually is viral . in labyrinthitis MRI is done to rule out other causes of ur symptoms . symptoms like vertigo and dizziness takes few weeks to come down . minimal edema in ur labyrinth can cause vertigo often . only symptomatic treatment with antihistamines and tab vertin is needed . for a patient who comes to my clinic , I will order MRI Only if I suspect intracerebral ( brain )pathology. I think I have answered your questions. I will be happy to answer any doubts if u have . thank u
