Clarification: You do NOT have "vestibular neuritis", as this is a short-term infection, lasting maybe 2-3 weeks. Would suggest you have otological testing to see if you have Meniere's, otolithic dysfnctn such as benign positional vertigo, or even perilymphatic or endolympatic fistula. See otolaryngologist.
