I didn't get any reply therefore I am posting an answer for you.

Vertigo is the feeling that you or your environment is moving or spinning, and it can be caused by problems in the brain or the inner ear. These include infections, inflammatory conditions, circulation issues to the brain etc..

Some times drugs/medications can also be responsible.

In general, there are no specific conditions which can specifically give you vertigo at night time only.

Since you have sleep apnea, a theoretical explanation of why you get vertigo at night time only is that when the apnea becomes severe at night/sleep; can lead to hypoxic (low oxygen) stimuli to brain which would possibly be giving these symptoms.

Any signs and symptoms of vertigo warrant an evaluation by a doctor. The majority of cases of vertigo are harmless, but it can be debilitating, most causes are easily treated with prescription medication.

I will suggest you to have this evaluated by your doctor discussing the details I have mentioned to chalk out further management plan.

I am more concerned about your untreated sleep apnea; which surely needs attention and management.

Good luck
