Hi, vertigo is related with inner ear problem. There are other causes like cervical spondylosis, brain lesion, acoustic neuroma etc. The cause should be investigated for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Investigations like MRI, auditory tests etc will be helpful in diagnosis. Symptomatic treatment for vertigo due to inner ear pathology is sedatives along with anti cholinergics.

My husband had the same thing that appears you have.  I am not sure what it is called I am not sure if it is vertigo. but they say a crystal broke off in his ear causing all of this and it could take up to 3 months to get better. he did not have a mri or anything they just went by his symptoms and I honestly can remember if they gave hi  medication or not
good luck and I hope you feel better
