The dietary change that worked for me was eliminating dairy. If I start eating dairy again I get clogged ears and then popping. If I don’t stop eating it I eventually end up with room spinning vertigo. But when stopped again the vertigo goes away

Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with meniere's disease.My symptoms included constant pain in both ears, dizziness, vertigo, and extremely loud tinnitus. I had difficulty sleeping, working and, just generally, functioning. It ruled my existence.

After a few months, I decided to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Over the course of two days, they did a battery of tests. When it came time for my diagnosis, the ENT looked at my chart, then at me, and said "all I can think is that it's a food allergy".

He was right. It turned to be an allergic reaction to legumes. Once I stopped eating them, I was back to normal again.

All by way of saying that when a doctor tells you that your condition is "idiomatic", it doesn't mean that there isn't a cause, but rather, that they don't know what the cause is.

I had a sudden attack of vertigo two days ago and read that some causes of vertigo could be related to a lack of water in the body due too to much salt or a high cholesterol. If this is the case. A diet as simple as staying off caffeine and salt would help. And taking more citrusy fruits like oranges will help reduce the bout of spinning. It works.
