From this study (2 weeks ago):
Woke up around 3am felt like I was spinning and spinning and felt nauseous, went to get up and my head was wobbly and felt heavy like a brick, finally stood up and everything was still spinning and I was falling to the right, I crawled into the bathroom and still was leaning to the right, I sat up for a long while and stabilized a bit. Drank some water went back to bed and could only lay on my right or the violent spinning would begin again and I could not lift my head off the pillow without the spinning too.
