I wouldn't be surprised if he goes on the DL because of this. Not good news at all for Votto owners, but it sure wouldn't be unexpected for the Reds to put him on the DL at this point. :-{

I have heard these same sypmtoms. Not too serious.

Here is a quote from a fanon reds.com

"MY wife had the same exact symptons and was first diagnosed with inner ear and vertigo, but the dizziness still continued. We scheduled with a specialist, ear, nose & throat; and was diagnosed with BPPV (Benign Paroxymal Positioning Vertigo). The Epley Maneuver was performed and after a week she was fine. That was in March of this year This is a simple, non-invasive procedure that takes approximately 15 minutes."

There's an update today ... sure to disappoint the "doomsday" preachers and armchair physicians :-b

Votto diagnosed with inner ear infection
Feeling better, Reds first baseman listed as day-to-day

By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com

CINCINNATI -- The tests are back on Reds first baseman Joey Votto, and the diagnosis behind his dizziness was a left inner ear infection.

"I'm just glad they found what it was. I'm thankful and grateful," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

Team internist Dr. Stephen Cleves and medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek made the diagnosis on Thursday after results from an audiologist came back.

"All other testing was normal," Reds head trainer Mark Mann said. "The only thing that came back irregular was the audiology tests that indicated he had an inner ear infection that was secondary to the upper respiratory infection he had 10 days ago, which I get from Dr. Cleves, is a common occurance.

"The last four days Joey has felt much better. He has not had any more symptoms since he got back to Cincinnati."

Votto first came down with the flu on May 7 and missed four starts. Then he took a flight with the club from Cincinnati to Phoenix on May 10 for a West Coast road trip.

"That's probably what set things off or started the symptoms," Mann said. "And then flying from Phoenix to San Diego. That's why he ended up having the symptoms again on Saturday."

Votto was resting Thursday morning and will made available to the media following Thursday afternoon's game. The Reds first baseman is listed as day-to-day. He did a light workout on Wednesday and was scheduled to do likewise Thursday, plus hit in the indoor cage.

"Our game plan at this point is if everything goes well today, he will participate in full activity [Friday] with his teammates before the game -- stretch, throw, take ground balls, take batting practice on the field," Mann said. "If all goes well, we'll go from there. Right now, it's just a day by day process."

"I'm sure he hasn't been sleeping or resting much," Baker said. "You're worrying about something that you don't know what you're worrying about. That's real worry right there."

Not to toot my own horn, but earlier in this thread...

Guys, Vertigo can be caused by a variety of things. It is a symptom. You have to know what is causing the vertigo to diagnose the patient and then give him his prognosis. Considering that he just had a viral infection, that is the most likely cause of the vertigo (acute labryinthitis) and that can last anywhere from a couple days to a week or two. It is probably not that serious and a VERY highly doubt he misses a lot more time.
