Brief Answer:
Probably nothing to worry about.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your query and understand your concerns.

You felt that your entire body was rotating or just the head?

Or maybe you felt like objects around you were rotating?

This rotation feeling happened when you changed your position?

Not all the rotating sensations are related to diseases.

Rotating sensation related to diseases are benign paroxysmal vertigo, Ménière's disease etc.

Blood pressure changes could result in rotating sensation too.

I don't think you have to worry, if the episode happens again, a check up needed to evaluate better your condition.

Hope this helps. Best regards.
