Brief Answer:
Take plenty of fluids

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. The first thing that you need to do is to drink plenty of water and fluids. The inner ear contains the organ of balance and problems with it lead to vertigo. In such a case medicines like betahistine or cinnarizine (prescription medicines) taken twice or thrice a day for a week or more usually provide relief. Please discuss with your doctor about taking these medicines.

Feel free to write back in case of further queries.
