A true labyrinthitis usually begins with sudden onset of whirling vertigo
. This acute incapcitating vertigo continues for 24-48 hrs. This followed by 2-10 days of severe disequilibrium mixed with motion induced vertigo. Over the next several weeks it slowly improves with normal walking at about 6-8 weeks with flareups for 6 months.
