In brief: Not many

Labyrinthitis is the name given to the inflammation of the labyrinth which is the balance portion of the hearing (acoustic)nerve.
The main symptoms are vertigo (dizziness with a sense of rotation) nausea and vomiting secondary to that and balance problems. Hearing is not affected.

Hearing may be affected if the labyrinthitis is secondary to generalized inflammation of the middle ear and surrounding structures.
