This is most likely a problem with the inner ear, also known as Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). In this condition, microscopic calcifications arise in the inner ear semicircular canals responsible for maintaining balance. The symptoms are dizziness especially during head movements and sharp turns, headache can also be associated. The treatment is simple and effective. It is known as the Epley's maneuver and is done at your doctor's office. This shifts the microcalcifications and re-positions them, thus alleviating the symptoms. I will suggest that you get in touch with your GP for an evaluation and the Epley's maneuver.
