Dizziness When Laying Down
A few thots: Maybe a local inner ear issue on the left, or perhaps, arterial compression in neck due to position, or even intracranial issues such as colloid cyst presentation.

Have had multiple episodes of dizziness when going to lay down on back with head tilted to left side. Coincidence or problem?
Vertigo: Does it feel like the room is spinning around you? Especially since you describe your dizziness occurring in a particular position, you may have benign positional vertigo (BPV). Visit your physician for an exam. Your physician can perform the Epley maneuver to try to treat you.

I have a bump on the left side of my head, above my ear but more towards the top. I sometimes get dizzy when getting up after sitting for a long time. It is solid but when I push on it it moves around but then comes back to the spot where it started
2 mnths ago i was hit with BPPV (left ear). I still sometimes feel dizzy or get mild vertigo while laying to left or turning left after laying down.
