What causes dizziness when one lies down and turns their head to the left?
It could be an ear infection. If it continues I would go and see the doctor. It also could be a pinched nerve. It's worth seeing your doctor about it if it happens often.
dizziness can be caused by several different health problems. The most common is called Vertigo. Vertigo causes you to feel nauseous because of the dizziness. The only treatment for it, is to get your doctor to prescribe Meclizine for nausea and stay home and do not lean forward or move your head real fast. It will stop on its own. another cause of dizziness is from consuming too much alcohol.
Dizziness and nausea is often symptoms associated with a condition known as vertigo. Vertigo is a condition that occurs when there is a problem in the middle ear. The middle ear (more specifically the vestibular system) is responsible for maintaining your sense of balance but when this system is not functioning properly you may feel dizzy, disorientated and even lose your sense of balance. Quick movements of the head can also cause dizziness.
