You may have benign paroxismal positional vertigo.

To help relieve BPPV, your doctor may treat you with a series of movements known as the canalith repositioning procedure. Performed in your doctor's office, the canalith repositioning procedure consists of several simple maneuvers for positioning your head. The goal is to move particles from the fluid-filled semicircular canals of your inner ear (vestibular labyrinth) into a tiny bag-like structure (utricle) where these particles don't cause trouble.
