Inner ear: This vertigo is usually caused by an inner ear disorder which may be from a tiny stone like particle that became dislodged in one of the labyrinths. Turning the head, even in bed, or changing postion provokes the vertigo. The medication Meclizine is helpful. If vertigo persists consult an Otolaryngologist who will perform some head maneuvers that often resolves the problem.
