What would you like to do?
Viral labyrinthitis--Sudden onset vertigo with plugged ear, some hearing loss and tinnitis. Nausea and vomiting may be present with the vertigo initially. After a few days the whirling downsizes to dizziness with everything in the surroundings appearing to sway and bob as you move about. Most websites say that all the symptoms disappear in 4-6 weeks but there are execeptions. Mine has continued unabated for over 3 months. Other than exercises to retrain the brain for balance, two ENT's say there is nothing else to be done. The dizziness should eventually disappear with the balance therapy but the plugged ear (particularly obtrusive and pronounced) and tinnitis could be lifelong.

The Labyrinth was a simple network of a single route, but the Labyrinth was said to bend its shape and reform itself against your minds wishes the Labyrinth of Crete anywa…y. Regular labyrinths are just a single routed maze. A labyrinth can be a structure in the inner ear, or it can simply be a maze. A labyrinth is a network complex or path, similar to a maze, that is difficult to get out of.
labyrinthitis is an inflamation of the "labyrinth" in your inner ear. Today it is used interchangeably with vestibular neuritis which is an inflammation of the vestibula…r nerve in your inner ear. Many doctors are not very well versed in this illness and nobody is really sure what causes it. Most people say a virus is the cause. Some people recover within 2-6 weeks, other people suffer effects for months or years after. Most people are alerted to the problem by vertigo or dizziness. This symptoms triggers or occurs in combination with strong anxiety and panic attacks. A whole host of symptoms can occur from this illness including headaches, fatigue, pains in the ears, weakness in the limbs, chest pains, etc. Other stranger symptoms that can occur which you would not immediately connect with the illness are pin prick sensations, feelings of numbness in the scalp, pains in the arms and legs, muscles spasms in the face, "shock" type jolts in the neck, and a sensory overload feeling inside your head. I suffered for months with this illness. Much longer than the 2 weeks I was told I would. Only by following a natural regimen of flooding my body with certain nutrients and following certain exercises did I overcome it. After following this regimen, my recovery really started and was dramatically better within 1 month. To see exactly what I did, I have created a report about how I beat my vertigo and labyrinthitis. http://dizzynomore.com

labyrinth is either a) a very complicated maze with the goal in the centre, made famous by the greek myth in which a man had to escape from one or he would be eaten by a… minotaur (half man, half bull) or b) a movie about a girl whose little brother is taken from her home by an evil man (David Bowie plays him, look it up on imdb.com) and she must go through his "Labyrinth" to save her brother.

Glibness and Superficial Charm Manipulative and Conning They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be cha…rming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims. Grandiose Sense of Self Feels entitled to certain things as "their right." Pathological Lying Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests. Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way. Shallow Emotions When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises. Incapacity for Love Need for Stimulation Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common. Callousness/Lack of Empathy Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them. Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others. Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc. Irresponsibility/Unreliability Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts. Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Labyrinths are a complex network of paths, often with traps. "Labyrinth" is another word for maze, where you are trying to a) get from the entrance to the exit, b) find …your way to the center, or c) looking for one or more special items. There is also a movie called Labyrinth where a girl named Sarah, has to babysit her brother. She wishes for the goblins to take him away, but she didn't actually mean it. The goblin king tells her that she can get her brother back if she solves a labyrinth within 13 hours. He teleports them both to the entrance, and leaves Sarah to start her quest. Sarah is trying to get to the center of the labyrinth, where her brother is being held in a castle.
