My 5 1/2 year old daughter keeps complaining of dizzy head and stomach that feels like it is doing sommer saults. What could be causing this?

In brief: Consider inner ear

One possibility is an inner ear disorder such as benign paroxysmal vertigo or a disease of the vestibular nerve.
Especially if she has a true spinning sensation during her spells, an ENT or neurologist may be able to help.
