Brief Answer:
Benign positional vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

I am sorry to hear that you have had some vertigo and dizziness episodes. They can be from BPV. The sweating is very common with it since you may also get nausea and vomiting too. The treatment is using meclizine which can be found OTC or a prescription strength from your medical provider. If the dizziness becomes worse you may need to see an ENT doctor. They have some treatments that maybe more effective for controlling the vertigo.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
