How to alleviate mild headaches and dizziness caused in certain positions?

I experience a mild headache and very mild dizziness when I sit in certain vehicles that I want to test drive without even driving them. However, I can sit and/or drive other vehicles without any problems. I also experience this when I lay down on certain pieces of furniture, but not all. I was told I may have a positional vertigo. Is there anything I can do to alleviate or eliminate the after effects of this? Thank you
