What you are referring to would actually be a middle ear infection (otitis media), not to be confused with an inner ear infection of the labyrinth (labyrinthitis).
Bellasmom1, vertigo is a symptom, not a condition. If you feel like you are moving, spinning, etc, then you are experiencing vertigo.
There are many different potential causes to vertigo, from either a central or vestibular origin. The most common include an inner ear infection, BPPV, MAV, etc... The test you will be receiving next week (probably ENG and/or VNG) will be the first step towards finding the cause of your symptoms. An appropriate method of treatment can then be pursued.
