Dizziness, head spinning, sweating, diarrhoea, nausea while driving. What could it be?

I was driving earlier today when my eyes rolled, and then I got very dizzy and couldnt hold my head up. I managed to pull into the middle lane and parked there for about ten min. My head was spinning, I got really hot and started sweating, and instant diarrhea , and felt like I was going to throw up. i drove home and laid down for a coupl hours. I have a wierd feeling in the back of my head, and just dont feel very good. I am wondering what happened, and what caused it

Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your symptoms, it could be a case of peripheral vertigo, the most common cause being benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). An ENT evaluation would be helpful.
However, if you have risk factors such as high BP, sugar or cholesterol, then, a posterior circulation TIA should be excluded. An evaluation by a neurologist would help.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
