Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is postural vertigo
The body's balancing mechanism is in the inner ear. An ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist is the one to see. They have special tests to confirm or exclude the contribution of the ear - which probably is the case with you.

It may be from postural hypo-tension.. Did you check your BP?
It can be from anaemia – what is your haemoglobin?
Has an ECG been done?
Discuss with your doctor

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
