What causes sporadic dizzy spells along with sudden headaches?

I m feeling dizzy whe I turn my head suddenly- this has become frequent in the past 2-3 days. Walking towards my car yesterday had to stop for a second to gain my composure since I got dizzy suddenly. Just got up from bed and felt it again...a dizzy spell that comes and goes. I have also experienced sudden headaches which disappear after 20-30 minutes. I m 43, male, have no heart conditions, no high blood pressure and don t smoke.

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

I guess you are suffering from BPPV. Certain specific posture leads to dizzy spells as in your case you have dizzy spells while awakening an walking high chance of BPPV but still other illnesses has to be ruled out. I will suggest consult your General Physician for expert opinion and clinical evaluation.

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