No: Separate issues see ENT md for vertigo/ off balance see rehab md may get immediate relief by neck position as sleep. Wrap your arm around pillow next to chest so arms are 'down' while sleeping head pillow has to be firm enough, and head must beperpendicular to your shoulder and not touching your shoulder as you sleep.
