Hello,

I have gone through your question and understand your concern.

Vertigo can occur due to many causes.

At this age benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or migraine may be the cause if no ear disease.

Brief Answer:
It's possible, better to get examined and evaluated by an ENT specialist.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Yes, the possibility of extension of war infection is there in such cases leading to inner ear damage and vertigo.

Sometimes migraine is associated with vertigo.

If you don't recover in 2-3 days then I'd suggest consulting an ENT specialist for further evaluation.

Regards.
