Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely cause for your symptoms is BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). This is related to minor dysfunction in the middle ear.
Symptoms resolve on their own in a few days. For relief, you may take betahistine tablets three times daily.
Once you feel better, you can do vestibular rehabilitation/ adaptation exercises to prevent recurrence of these symptoms later.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
