Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX welcome to HCM,

Firstly I would like you to take a good medicine for acidity twice a day for three days.

Secondly check your blood pressure and blood glucose.

If in spite of acidity medication, and your Blood pressure and blood glucose being normal, your symptoms recur, then please see your doctor to rule out other causes--in ears, cervical spondylitis, transient insufficient blood flow to brain etc.
