Hello friend
The symptoms you are showing are of 'vertigo' which most of the time misdiagnosed as cervical spondylosis or something like that.
Vertigo can be cured by 'vestibular rehabilitation therapy' which has set of exercises performed under expert guidance only.
So please visit neuro physio for guidance please.

It's really horrible to face that kind of problem. the symptoms that you describe can be misdiagnosed with a simple and commonly known problem of cervical spondylosis (CS), but in that the problem often causes numbness or tingling in upper extremity. Since you haven't mentioned about any kind of numbness / tingling it takes us into a totally different but a common scenario of Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) accompanied with Nausea and vomiting. Mainly caused by over deposition of Calcium if taken without medical advice in uncontrolled manner. Thirdly, As per your age 26 y.o it might be often caused due to improper positioning and OVER USE OF MOBILE PHONE and other devices (laptop and ipads) which makes you constantly bend your neck for several hours continuously, leading to spasm in neck musculature which leads to decrease in blood supply to brain causing the symptoms. to exaggerate.
Next Steps
A thorough assessment of Head and neck along with lifestyle would be required. Consult a Neurologist, Neuro-Occupational therapist / Occupational therapist / Neuro-Physiotherapist (in order of priority). Who would be able to guide you through? And if required teach some techniques and methods to overcome and avoid further damage to delicate but important structures.
Health Tips

Hi..... Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a headache. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on....
