In brief: Uncommon

Uncommon but not unheard of.
Acute labyrinthitis can make you feel so bad that vomiting and loss of bowel function could occur. If this happens more than once you definitely need to discuss it with your doctor.

In brief: Ummm . . .

Nausea / vomiting is very common, "lower bowel" accidents are not.
Labyrinthitis is usually a once in a lifetime kind of a deal. If you are getting multiple "attacks" of labyrinthitis, the diagnosis may not be labyrinthitis. You should see an otologist or neurotologist to clarify your diagnosis.
