When my dog had his episodes the vet also said his inner ear looked fine but still treated it as an ear infection. She actually thought he had a brain tumor but with his age, health issues, and anxiety at the vet I didn't take him to a specialist to check for a brain tumor. When a friend of mine suggested vestibular disorder I researched it and I think most likely that's what was going on. I found that vets misdiagnose it sometimes and they aren't really sure what causes it. It sounds like it can be recurring but it usually only lasts a couple days at a time. My dog was given previcox and baytril, not sure if he responded well to the meds or if it was something that just went away after awhile but he did improve, might be something worth asking your vet about and giving a try. It was really awful seeing him like that, and I'm sure had to be very scary and confusing for him. Your dog sounds similar but I am no vet and I'm sure it could be a number of things.
