From your symptoms it appears to be vertigo, as your doctor has told you.
Vertigo causes similar symptoms like spinning of room, moving of the eyes, nausea etc.

There are various causes of vertigo.

It may be due to the disturbances of blood supply when you suddenly move your head or when you get up or lie down.

The causes may include nerve, ear or vascular factors. Most cases of vertigo are benign.

You can have more information on it in this link.

As it is recurring frequently you should consult a neurologist for a check up.

Please ask if you need any clarifications,

Thank you.
