Brief Answer:
Vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

The following possibilities comes to my mind for your description
Nutritional deficiency like Iron, Vitamin B esp B12, Calcium, Vitamin D- It is wise to get them tested if not done recently.
Pregnancy if you are sexually active and not permanently sterilized - If not sterilized then get a urine pregnancy test with first sample of urine in the morning
Benign positional vertigo - Due to unknown reasons the position of head would lead to imbalance in the inner canals of the ear. This gets corrected spontaneously after a week or two on use of vertin. Just wake up from bed very slowly. Always move to the end of the bed without getting up, first put your legs down and slowly elevate the head and upper body from the pillow. Sit on the edge of the bed for couple of minutes and stand up. Have one or two glasses of water as soon as possible.

Thank you for the query and let me know if you need clarification.

Brief Answer:
Neurologist evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

You may need higher evaluation by a Neurologist, check for the blood supply to the brain. Sometimes the arteries to the brain are partially clogged but would not rise upto the requirements. They can test for color doppler of the carotid arteries supplying the brain. May be a ECHO of the heart as well.

I suggest a neurologist evaluation further without delay.
