How To Know If I Have an Ear Infection? 10 Ear Infection Symptoms



The inner ear contains a series of specialized structures in a singular compartment called labyrinth. This area of the inner ear is filled with a special fluid that moves around depending on the position and inclination of the head. In the labyrinth, the movement of this fluid is translated and sent to the brain to regulate body balance. During an inner ear infection, the inflammation process may also affect the labyrinth, and impair the normal function of these special structures, causing dizziness and vertigo to the patient.
