Thanks for query,
The symptoms suggest that the first possibility is of vertibro bassilar insufficiency.your small brain's vessel doesn't get enough blood so you have this type of symptoms.
The other possibility may be of some intracranial vascular abnormality.
CT angio of brain should be done to rule out it.
