What could be the cause of dizzy spells ?

I feel, as though I am in a merry go-round. In bed it occurs when I turn over from one side to the other. Specially on the left side and when I try to get up.

I was having dizzy spells like you mention and it sounds like Mennierres Disease. It is an inner ear imbalance.
Good luck

Hello There.
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Dizzy spells may be due to problems in brain, ear or heart. You need to consult a ENT specialist and get various investigation to rule out problems related to your ear..
You also need check your Blood pressure to rule out orthostatic hypo-tension.
Hope this helps..
Take care..
