Vertigo is not a disease. It is more often called a symptom that can occur for a variety of reasons, causing dizziness in which an individual's sense of balance can become compromised. It is a condition that can be cured a variety of ways, many of them being simple home remedies. For severe vertigo, it is less likely you will resolve this problem at home -- you might need your doctor's help. But while you're waiting for your appointment, it's worth trying to solve the problem on your own.

Visit your doctor. Whether the vertigo is cured or not, you will need to let your doctor know what you've experienced and try to find the cause.
Ask your doctor about various medications you can take. Your doctor will make his recommendations based on what he thinks is causing the vertigo.
