MAV or Labyrinhitis

I'm a 23 year old male

I have constant 24/7 dizziness since i had Tonsillitis and a swollen lymph node in my neck.

29 July i had tonsillitis,

1Th of August i woke up feeling lightheaded.

03Th of august i got a 7 days Antibiotics to cure my Tonsillitis

19Th of August (worst day ever) i got ringing in my left ear which is there constant and does not go away. (also no hearing loss after hearing test)

22 August CAT scan of my brain which came out negative.

ENT guys said 6 weeks and I'm better but it has been 7 weeks and 2 days and no improvements. What do i have Labyrinhitis or MAV? (i never had a headache).

I have fullness in both ears and i can hear my ears pop occasionally also i never had vertigo just this constant dizzy,tipsy,surreal like feeling. I can move around jump and run and it won't make my dizziness worse although anxiety sometimes does but i have that under control now.

I don't have any med's just a nose spray because it could be my eustachian tube causing all this.

Does anyone know when this will all end? Will i ever get rid of the Dizziness and Tinnitus?

Please help!

Re: MAV or Labyrinhitis

The symptom history does not sound like Labyrinthitis because you would have had a distict episode of vertigo, tinnitus, and unilateral (1 sided) ear pressure for a few days-weeks.

MAV is very likely if you have a history of migraine headache at any time in your life.

I would avoid migraine triggers, and consider asking a doctor for migraine prophylactic medication. This is the only way to diagnose MAV.

Note: bilateral ear pressure is very common in MAV patients.
