Cerebral ischemia: You need to be evaluated for carotid artery or vertebral artery blockages. These can contribute to interrupted blood flow to the brain which can make you dizzy.

Sounds like: Benign positional vertigo, especially if sudden in onset and resolves when holding your head still. To be certain your doctor can perform some simple in-office tests and ask you some specific questions. If bpv most cases resolve spontaneously within a few weeks. Avoid precarious situations until resolved.

Hard to say: This is a non specific problem with many causes and really would need your doctors input. Depends on much more information, other symptoms and findings on physical exam among other things.
