Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. Your prooblem is otitis media of both ears causing pressure on the internal ear. or may be the vertigo could be due to pain of the ears of varius aetiology. if vertigo is due to internal ear it depends on the position and as pain is there on both sides you try the trial and errer method and you can select the side in which you are comfertable.
I advise you to consult an ENT surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. you may have to take MRI along with other routine tests for confermation.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recomendations as avoid taking ice water, ice cream, cool drinks, fruits and juices, spices and chillies.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, milk, egg, meat, and sea foods to increase the resestance and general health. Wishing for a quick recvery, and thanks for calling.
