What causes sleeplessness, dizziness and headache?

I am 61 years old. I have high blood pressure, cholestrol problem n ear problem (a blocked ear). Recently I v been experiencing giddiness when I lie down to sleep no matter what direction. My sleep gets interrupted n I lie in bed feeling dizzy, nauseous n ahammering headache. These problems came one at a time a few months ago. Like having a headache when I get up. Feeling dizzy when I go to sleep or bend down. Nauseous when I get up. I bring out sour phlegm. Now all appear at the same time. Very distressing. Pl reply. Thanks

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You have to go to an audiologist to perform vestibular nystagmography test to assess the vestibular nerve and inner ears which are responsible for balance.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
