In brief: Two weeks

Irritation of the balance system will result in vertigo, nausea, even vomiting with balance problems.
The system needs time to recover and re-regulate. This usually takes about 10 days to two weeks. Medications may make recovery faster, but some make it slower and cause persistent symptoms. Rest and good health habits improve rate of recovery.
