Is this vertigo?

So my dizzy spells have been weird, some when sitting, standing or horrible room spinning laying down. When I'm upright they literally last about 4/5 seconds and I have to catch my balance.

I have ringing in one ear - along with headaches when these happen too ☹️

Google is giving lots of ideas - any help here would be much appreciated!

Ps - they have become more frequent recently.

Vertigo is just a symptom, either the sensation that you are moving when you're not or your surroundings moving when they're not. There's lots of things that can have vertigo as a symptom, such as labyrinthitis and BPPV etc but you need to find out what is causing it. You have my sympathy, it's a very unpleasant feeling.
