Is it actually fluid in the inner ear or just otoconia.


I’ve seen many articles on “fluid” but i cant get a straight answer if it is in fact actual fluid.

Yes, the inner ear has a fluid in it supporting the otoconia. It’s a modified form of lymphatic fluid but is significantly higher in calcium to help keep the otoconia mineralized. Without the fluid providing inertia, the otoconia wouldn’t have resistance and thereby function.
