In brief: Peripheral or Brain

Vertigo is the perception of true movement in the absence of your moving.
Its cause may be peripheral in the inner ear or central in the vestibular portion of the brain. Thus, a specific diagnosis must first be established before any meaningful therapy can be started. Diagnosis before treatment. Recommend seeing an Otologist before you take over the counter meclizine.
