After effects of vertigo? Maybe VRT is required?

What are the after-effects of vertigo? I initially had a very bad vertigo attack driving home on the highway - it was detected to be an ear infection which cleared up eventually but since then, I've had little bouts of vertigo if that's what you wanna call them.

I think it was labyrinthitis and then BPPV developed on top of it - the funny thing is sometimes when I do the Epley, the vertigo won't come on, but other times, it does. It very rarely comes on due to a specif position so it's hard to explain ... and actually sometimes, I will be completely still and it will come on. the ENT I saw and my own DR can't really explain it...they can only hope that it's nothing serious and that it'll go away.

The first vertigo attack I'm referring to came on March 1st of this year and since then I haven't had such a severe attack but as I mentioned, I had it once in a while and definitely not as severe. What I can say is that I haven't recovered 100%.

It's hard for me to describe the feeling that I still get but I'll give an example: if I look into the distance especially as I drive, I kinda get the feeling that the vertigo will come on again - I get a tiny bit of a blurry vision feeling like my eyes are running...not sure if that makes sense? Can anyone explain this or perhaps somebody else has experienced this? Is this a vestibular issue that needs VRT training or something to that effect??

Any responses would be utmost helpful to me! I don't know what to do about this as it affecting my abilities to drive and have my independence.
