hello and welcome to HCM,

In accordance to your symptoms, i can tell you that there are a plethora of harmless treatable causes for your condition but also that there are equal or more number of ominous causes for the same!

With that in mind lets go through a few things which can put your mind at ease:
1. Get a full audiological work up after ear examination
2. Get a CT of the temporal bone which can rule out any mass lesion
3. Get a list of the vestibular rehabilitation exercise and do them frequently

if the attacks are recurrent then you need to start on proper anti vertigo medications depending on your symptoms

take care
