Thyroid & vestibular neuritis
Could someone explain in basic terms what thyroid trouble relates to vestibular neuritis? I have been told that people sometimes need to be treated by a thyroid specialist for this unusual balance related disorder of the inner ear. Why? What about the thyroid could have an impact on this type of neuritis?

I'm boggled. They are in two different systems in the body and I don't see how they are related. I've only studied vestibular neuritis (a viral infection) in a review course, but from my understanding you'd see an audiologist or otolaryngologist (ENT).

Vestibular neuritis - in most cases, vestibular neuritis is a self-limiting condition that only occurs once in a person’s lifetime. However, some mild dizziness when moving the head may continue for several years following the infection. For the remaining five per cent or so of cases, the symptoms recur. The condition is then considered to be another type of balance disorder, such as Meniere’s syndrome or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).

There are MANY thyroid sufferers who have ear problems and dizziness.
Get your thyroid levels checked.
