I am very worried that i still am having these spells and it seems my vision is affected . Are these signs of ms or something neurological , im too scared to get an MRI done but i have had 2 cat scans
Labyrinthitis usually goes away on its own within a few days to weeks. If labyrinthitis was triggered by a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be prescribed. Were you given a prescription or any course of treatment when you saw the ER doctor?
It sounds like you need to get a full check up with your health care provider - not an emergency room - to explore all of your symptoms. Start making notes about when the attacks occur: time of day, what you were eating/drinking, if you took any prescription or OTC medication, how much sleep you've etc. The more details the better!
