In brief: Common cause

Could be many things.
But one of the most common causes is benign positional vertigo which usually resolves in a day or so. However sometimes it may require medications and certain exercises. Please talk to your doctor about it.

Prior to the episode. You could be anemic, or you may have even had a mini stroke. It could be "nothing", or a serious warning.
