In brief: Yes

I can only relate to vestibular neuritis and yes it is virtually always a viral infection of the vestibular nerve or the ganglion cells of the vestibular nerve.
Cytomegalovirus is one of the viruses that can cause this. It is usually a self limited disease and there is no specific treatment except for symptomatic relief.
