The usual cause of dizziness when laying down is a drop in blood pressure. Your blood pressure changes rather quickly when you change positions from standing to laying down. Other causes can be inner ear infections and vertigo. Check with your doctor for positive determination.

The major cause of dizziness when you lay down is orthostatic hypotension which means that when you are in a certain position of a long time the circulation of your body tends to be pulled towards the ground causing decreased blood flow to the upper body especially to the brain. Just lay down and stand up slowly, it helps,

The most likely cause is benign positional vertigo, caused by crystals moving in the inner ear. Your doctor can give you a simple exercise for this condition.

Vertigo when laying down, sitting up or changing head position, is caused by a disturbance of inner ear fluid. There is a prescribed medicine to help the dizziness but it will not cure the cause. Therapy will do that but it consists of moving your head in ways that will literally make you nauseous. It may disappear on its own.
