It almost feels like low blood sugar.
I get that feeling of an elevator dropping too! It's probably part of the condition Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (Disembarkment Syndrome). I feel like I'm being 'sucked' into the ground sometimes. I went to the doctor about it a few years go & had a head CT and also went to an ENT, but he had no idea what it was. Well, turns out that Disembarkement Syndrome is not very well known, but this sensation can be part of this syndrome.
The spinning is probably vertigo & to do with the area in the ears which control balance. I also get that sometimes.
But it's this other weird dizziness that has me stumped - sort of like a spacey, eyes feel weird type thing that passes with rest.
