Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is the most common type of vertigo. This is a disabling condition, the room is spinning and it can cause nausea and even vomiting. It can last from a few seconds to a few minutes. Typically it occurs in the morning after you get up, with swift head movements or when looking up.

Wikipedia describes it as  a subtype of dizziness in which a patient inappropriately experiences the perception of motion (usually a spinning motion) due to dysfunction of the vestibular system. It is often associated with nausea and vomiting as well as a balance disorder, causing difficulties with standing or walking. There are three types of vertigo. The first is known as objective and describes when the patient has the sensation that objects in the environment are moving. The second type of vertigo is known as subjective and refers to when the patient feels as if he or she is moving. The third type is known as pseudovertigo, an  intensive sensation of rotation inside the patient’s head. While this classification appears in textbooks, it has little to do with the pathophysiology or treatment of vertigo.

Crystals ,or little stones, get into the  vestibular system which sends signals primarily to the neural structures that control eye movements, and to the muscles that keep a creature upright. Little hairs in there let us know if we are up, down or sideways. When those little crystals get in there, they move the hair making the body think it is in a different position that what it actually is in: the eyes don’t confirm what the “ear” is telling it, causing spinning and dizziness.
You need to rule out any other medical conditions that can cause Vertigo and then confirm with your  Doctor which ear is the culprit.
There is Physical Therapy you can do and also advise to see a Chiropractor!
I had a severe case about 3 years ago, and now see a Chiropractor on a regular basis and especially when I start feeling a little queasy. Meclizine  will help you to function, but it will not cure it.
