No way to know from: a distance. Also be aware that labyrinthitis is only a label for a pattern of symptoms & may not reflect much insight into what is actually happening. Many nominal ear problems are actually within the brain, study: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/856215-differential for some additional ideas/possibilities. Pain would be consistent with intracranial issues, such as a vascular headache.
