Neurologist 's  Response
The symptoms of dizziness with sweating etc are likely to be due to positional vertigo. The most common of that is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). It is caused by the problems in the inner ear. There are organs for the body balance in the inner ear. The abnormal stimulation of these organ gives the false sensation of imbalance to the brain and results in giddiness. There is also associated sympathetic nervous system activation causing sweating, suffocation, palpitation etc.
Good luck.
