Labyrinthitis - An Inner Ear Condition Which Can Cause Balance Loss
Keeping our balance refers to the skill of maintaining our upright position, whether while standing still or in motion. As you probably already know, the inner ear is one of the organs of the vestibular system, in charge of keeping the entire body balances. Today, we want to talk about a disease which attacks this part of the hearing system: Labyrinthitis.
Labyrinthitis is a little-known disease, considered to be part of the group of balance conditions. The loss of balance is possibly one of the most severe and serious symptoms of the disease. It consists of the inflammation — hence the suffix "-itis" — and irritation of the inner ear.
