Why do I get dizzy when I lay on the left side of my head?

A few thots

Dizziness
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. In some cases, a videonystagmogram will provide localization and therapeutic directions. If inner ear, an Epley maneuver may work wonders.

Dizziness

Head
This might be benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV. See an ENT. The doctor may be able to perform a modified Epley maneuver, which has a >90% rate of improving your dizziness.

Is it normal every time I lay on my stomach I get up with throbbing on the back of my head for about 30 seconds and its get hard 2 see with dizziness?

Not normal

Head
You are probably hyper-extending your neck in the prone (belly down) position. This causes occipital nerve irritation (headache) and possibly vertebral artery compression ("dizziness"). So either turn your head when prone or don't lay on your belly.

Positional vertigo?

The chances are that this is BENIGN POSITIONAL VERTIGO But other diagnoses should be ruled out Vertigo is a SYMPTOM not a diagnosis!

Why do I get dizzy and nausea when I tilt my head back is it my ears , and can this be causing me to feel sick a lot .

Positional vertigo

Motion_sickness
It is common to experience vertigo on extending the head back and lowering the head. That is due to the inner ear balancing mechanism being stimulated and that can make you nauseous.

This is frequently caused by positional vertigo. Exercises often will correct this problem. An ear specialist is the best physician to see to diagnose this condition

Stiff neck

hit the back of my head 4 days ago still have bump i little dizzy when i lay down?

Concussion

Vertigo
You may be experiencing some mild concussion symptoms. However, should your symptoms worsen or you develop vomiting or lethargy, a trip to the emergency room is warranted. Only a brain imaging, such as a CT scan or an MRI of the brain, can rule out a brain hemorrhage or a subdural hematoma.

I discovered a lump on the back of my head, left side bottom of my skull that makes me dizzy when I push on it, what could this be?

Lump on head

I'm not exactly sure what this could be, but with the dizziness I would have you see either a neurologist or an ENT to be evaluated.
