Is 62% weakness(right ear) in caloric test normal?

Hi guys,
Ive been suffering from dizziness and severe motion sickness for the past four months. My symptoms are as listed below.

Constant internal motion
Fuzzy woozy sensation

The internal movement is relieved when i lay down or when my head is rested on a solid platform.
Impossible to sit upright and do stuff. My body feels like its jerking and rocking in all directions.
Actual motion reliefs internal motions.

So I did a VNG test and turns out i have a 62% right peripheral weakness. However my doc said it may not be completely responsible for all my symptoms.... What??

So what i need to know now is that is there something else to consider for these type of balance disorders? I did a brain CT scan, VEMP and ran 4 blood tests. All came back normal. Also, will I recover COMPLETELY with physical therapy?

Thank you all....
