1 doctor agrees

In brief: Perhaps vertigo

If you felt as if you were moving, then it could be peripheral vertigo.
This causes episodic dizziness, especially after head movement, and it affects people regardless of their overall health. It sounds much less likely it would be related to medicines, your heart function or your brain. How long did it last? Was it better with sitting down? Might help to know.
