Welcome to e health forum.

Viral infections can result in conditions like vestibular neuritis or labyrinthytis.

The symptoms of both vestibular neuritis and labyrinthitis typically include dizziness or vertigo, disequilibrium or imbalance, and nausea. Acutely, the dizziness is constant. After a few days, symptoms are often only precipitated by sudden movements.

Your symptoms may need proper treatment with medications like antiemetics to control your nausea and vestibular suppressents (like - Antivert, Ativan, Compazine). Hence you should consult with your treating doctor for a proper prescription of the above medications.

In severe cases, steroid medications may also be necessary to control the inflammation and help in recovery.
