Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. The most common cause for such a situation is Positional Vertigo or BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).

2. There is no self test possible or self medication needed. This condition is very common.

3. Kindly visit the nearest ER to rule out other causes.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
