Mental Health

The vestibular system is central to a person’s core functioning. A damaged or diseased vestibular system, therefore, affects not only how you feel but how you can perform day-to-day activities. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and confused.

Most people with Meniere’s do not have mental health problems. However, some people can realise that they are becoming depressed & anxious.

Emotional Impact

Living with a vestibular disorder affects a person’s life in many ways. Many things you used to be able to do easily are a struggle or impossible. Going to the mall, grocery shopping, attending a play, visiting with family – these everyday activities are like mountains you have to climb. And because your symptoms are invisible, your friends, family, and coworkers don’t understand and may even question whether your symptoms are real.

The emotional impact of Meniere’s can make you feel sad, frightened, confused, worried, angry, & overwhelmed. In severe cases, Personality Disorders, Addictions  & Suicidal Thoughts can surface.

However, a vestibular disorder counselling service with specialist therapists can help you with shared first-hand experiences through your journey.

General Information

Prevalence

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): The most common cause of positional vertigo is a sudden feeling that you’re spinning or swaying. It happens when tiny calcium crystals in one part of your ear move into an area where they shouldn’t be. This causes your inner ear to tell your brain you’re moving when you’re not.

BPPV can be treated through a series of head movements your doctor guides you through. These put the crystals back where they’re supposed to be.

Labyrinthitis: You might know this as an inner ear infection. It happens when a fragile structure deep inside your ear known as a labyrinth gets inflamed. This affects not just your balance and hearing, but you also may have ear pain, pressure, pus or fluid coming from your ear, nausea, and a high fever.

You may need to take antibiotics if a bacterial infection causes your labyrinthitis. Your doctor also might recommend steroids to help bring down inflammation or another kind of drug known as an antiemetic to help with vomiting and dizziness.

Vestibular neuritis: A viral infection somewhere else in your body, such as chickenpox or measles, can bring on this disorder that affects the nerve that sends sound and balance information from your inner ear to your brain.

The most common symptoms are sudden dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and trouble walking.

Continued

To treat vestibular neuritis, your doctor may give you medicine to wipe out the virus causing it.

Meniere’s disease: People with this disorder have sudden attacks of vertigo, tinnitus (a ringing, buzzing, or roaring sound in their ears), hearing loss, and a feeling of fullness in the affected ear. This may be caused by too much fluid in the inner ear, thanks to a virus, allergy, or autoimmune reaction. The hearing loss gets worse over time and can be permanent in some cases.

Some lifestyle changes can help — like cutting down on salt, caffeine, and alcohol — and medication can ease attacks. In rare cases, people need surgery to relieve their symptoms. Parts of the affected inner ear are cut or removed, so they stop sending the wrong balance signals to your brain.

Perilymphatic fistula (PLF): This is a tear or defect between your middle ear and fluid-filled inner ear that can make you feel dizzy and may cause some hearing loss. You can be born with PLF, or it can be caused by barotrauma (increased pressure in your ear), a head injury, or heavy lifting.

Mental Health

A Vestibular disorder is a chronic balance disorder; vestibular dysfunction affects the patient and their family on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Balance in life is essential, and this is true across all areas of your life. Whether it’s a “work-life” balance or your ability to balance on your own two feet, balance is an essential aspect of life. Many take this aspect of their body for granted and don’t truly realise how vital the vestibular system is.

To learn more about this misunderstood and complex disorder, check out these top vestibular disorders facts.

  • Vestibular disorders are more common than you think. It is estimated that over 35% of adults over 40 have had a vestibular disorder.
  • Meniere’s disease, vestibular neuritis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vertigo, vestibular migraines, and labyrinthitis are some of the most common vestibular disorders.
  • The common symptoms of vestibular disorders often include balance issues, tinnitus, vertigo, dizziness, hearing loss, a vision that “jumps,” nausea, fatigue, poor concentration, problems with memory, depression, and anxiety.
  • Want to know what’s included in the vestibular system? It has your eyes, the inner ear and brain parts that process sensory information and affect your balance.
  • Vestibular disorders can occur from ageing, disease, chemicals, drugs, autoimmune conditions, and traumatic brain injuries. In some cases, the infection can occur from unexplained causes.
  • Vestibular disorders can be life-altering, but there is hope for partial recovery. Even though there is no cure, the disorder can be managed with vestibular exercises and therapy, and symptoms can improve with vestibular exercises.
  • It is essential to find a physician who is well-versed in vestibular disorders. It’s prevalent for those who suffer from this disorder to be misdiagnosed and don’t receive an accurate diagnosis at first. Some may have to see multiple physicians before they are correctly diagnosed.
