What’s the reason of vertigo ?
Have you went through any medical problem recently ?
Get your hemoglobin and BP checked…
I had such a problem 2 years back due to excessive heat in summer, nothing helped and it went of its own later.
I suggest you to eat healthy food and fruits.

How are you sure it’s vertigo? What are your symptoms apart from what you’ve mentioned?

Doctors can separate dizziness from vertigo by asking a simple question: “Is the world spinning, or are you lightheaded?” If the world appears to be spinning, you have true vertigo. If you are lightheaded, you are experiencing dizziness.

Tests

Tests to determine the type of vertigo include:


* Head-thrust test: You look at the examiner’s nose, and the examiner makes a quick head movement to the side and looks for correct eye movement.

* Romberg test: You stand with feet together and eyes open, then close your eyes and try to maintain balance.

* Fukuda-Unterberger test: You’re asked to march in place with your eyes closed without leaning from side to side.

This is mostly because of ear fluid imbalance.
Even if tiny amount is altered whole sense of balance shifts.
In other words sense of balance comes from this fluid itself.

There are mainly 2 type of vertigo.

1) Peripheral vertigo caused by problems in inner ear.

2) Central Vertigo caused by problems in brain/ nervous system.

Go to a  good ENT. Try to find someone who has  atleast MD in ENT.  Or is actually teaching in a hospital ( try some one senior in ENT department of a big teaching government hospital… Where resident  doctors are trained ).  Or who has experience teaching… Now retired.  They seem to have more knowledge and they stay up todate about latest medical developments.

Otherwise there’s no way I know to find out how good your doctor is or  isn’t ( without getting treatment for months)

Read the article  I linked in previous comment.

As you have no balance problem it’s most likely to be peripheral vertigo.

If vertin didn’t worked. Try taking Vertizac Tablet(Medicine composition: Cinnarizine, Dimenhydrinate).
It worked for me.
For proper Diagnosis you needed to ascertain if any sound in ear. If yes then go to a good ENT specialist.
If no sound then you need to see a neurologist and get MRI done for proper diagonsis.
In between try to get proper sleep and low salt diet.

If looking for a good ENT specialist I will recommended Dr kirtne of Mumbai. There is 3 month waiting period for his appointment. But he is one of the best docter in India for ear related vertigo.
