Causes of vestibular neuronitis

The vestibular nerve usually becomes inflamed because of a viral infection, which may have started with a sore throat , cold or flu .

Vestibular neuronitis can also be caused by a bacterial infection, such as a middle ear infection or meningitis , although this is much less common. Bacteria can also get into your inner ear if you have a head injury.
