Is it possible to still have labyrinthitis after 5 months or could it be something else now?

In brief: Not likely

Labyrinthitis is used to describe acute inflammation of the inner ear with vertigo and at times hearing loss.
This is typically short-lived. However, if the injury to the inner ear is signfiicant, the vertigo symptoms can persist for quite some time as the brain compensates for them. There are many other causes of persisting or recurring vertigo. You should probably see your doctor.
