The duration of an acute episode of labyrinthitis, which is the most common cause of acute vertigo, can vary significantly. The acute vertigo can persist for as little as a few days or as long as a few weeks. However, there can be some residual symptoms, such as vertigo that occurs in certain positions or unsteadiness, that can persist for several months. It is typically impossible to predict at the beginning how long each episode will last.
