acute onset of vertigo and vomiting in old age with other systemic problems such as hypertension and diabetes needs complete neurological evaluation..though vertigo can be due to ear problems its not always true.. consult a neurologist and get ct or MRI of brain to rule out any major problems..if everything is normal then you can take regular anti vertigo medicines
