Has anyone had to have their ears syringed in the Paralimni area? My wife has tried the usual ear drops but this has had no effect so she now wants to get her ears syringed. Can anyone recommend where she could go?
Sorry can't help with your question and sorry to go off track a little, but as we are on the subject of ears, has anybody on the forum suffered with Labyrinthitis, which is a problem with the inner ear. Got it at the moment and it's flippin awful. Just wondered if anybody else had suffered with it and if they had any tips, i.e. what symptoms they suffered, how long they had it, etc.
Sorry again to go off track a little, hope you get an answer about syringing.
I have had Labrinthitis a few times, unfortunately it seems to be one of those things that if you've had it once it's the weak point for any virus you have to attack.
Awful awful sensation. Only thing I can do is lie down. Every time my head lifts off the pillow I am violently ill. My attacks usually last approx 48-72 hours for the acute symptoms and leave me weak but at least able to sit up.
Touch wood I have not had a severe attack now for 3 or more years but I do occasionally get milder episodes. I have been prescribed Stemitil, but during severe attacks I have been given an anti-emetic injection.
I do not really have any advice, just listen to your body and when you do feel better try not to do too much too soon because the fatigue that follows an attack is a very real symptom
I do feel for you because I know just how awful you will be feeling.
Get well soon.

Agree with muffin,Dr Emilios is the ENT Specialist localy. I have a long term ear difficulty and the local GPs all summon Dr Emilios if I go to them with a problem. His English is OK and he is a good ENT doc.
I am suffering with one ear at the moment. Tinnitus and dizziness/sickness. Doctor has said that she suspects Menier's disease. I have an appointment with ear specialist in late April. Really don't want to be officially diagnosed with this condition as it means I wont be able to drive.
Only had one really bad attack so far but the dizzy spells continue especially when I am laying down.

I haven't suffered such severe attacks as Judith but I feel "strange" most of the time, it's very hard to explain. I don't actually feel dizzy but do feel lightheaded and my vision doesn't seem right, almost like looking through a goldfish bowl. Like Ruth, it is worse when laying down at night time - I have read on the internet that you do have attacks during your sleep. I explained to my GP how I was feeling and the symptoms I have had and he said that the Labyrinthitis was causing anxiety attacks. Great!!
Judith - Hope you don't have any more severe attacks.
Ruth - good luck with the specialist, hope it goes well.
