hi ,
your details suggest that you have an aneurysm of internal carotid artery , it has complications like rupture and pressure effects and other. And you already having symptoms like vertigo , you consular a Neuro physician/ surgeon as early as possible and evaluate.
Mean while if you have hypertension , you should control it by taking regular medications.
