Brief Answer:
Check for blood pressure.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

There are few reasons at this age especially high blood pressure and the gastritis, anemia, hypoglycemia and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo(BPPV)

But in your case i feel it might be due to High or BPPV. Get an BP and blood glucose checked, if these are fine the you'll have to consult a ENT specialist to rule out BPPV.

Until the exact cause is ruled out treatment cannot be given correctly.

Any further query do get back.

Take care.
