It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Stroke, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Labyrinthitis.
Labyrinthitis is a type of balance disorder that is usually caused by a viral inner ear infection. It can cause symptoms of dizziness, blurry vision, light-headedness, nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ear and hearing loss. The only treatment is to treat the cause of the inner ear infection itself. As it causes a balance disorder so it can be mistaken for vestibular neuritis which is inflammation of the vestibular nerve. The nerve that sends messages to the brain.
