Neurologist 's  Response

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

You do not have to worry about anything. I feel that you have paroxysmal positional vertigo. Generally this problem is treated with various exercises (apley maneuver, brandtdarroff maneuver etc). Medications like cinnarizine, betahistine may help reduce the nausea/vomiting etc but won't help in log term. Please consult a local neurologist who will have the advantage of examining you and also will rule out other conditions which can present in similar way.
