Hello!

Welcome on Healthcaremagic!

Your symptoms could be related to an inner ear disorder. For this reason, I recommend consulting with an ENT specialist and performing labyrinthine tests.
I would also recommend discuss on the possibility of starting Meclizine, to prevent these episodes of vertigo. It is an antihistamine, which is also helpful against allergic reactions.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best wishes, Dr. Aida
