Thank you for your question to HCM.

The symptoms you have described are commonly related to postural hypotension or benign positional vertigo. It would be helpful to know if you have other medical problems like diabetes or hypertension or had recent infection. In my opinion to correlate your symptoms with clinical examination you need to see a doctor.

Hope this is helpful. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
