It sounds as if you'd benefit from an investigation for possible problems with the inner ear. It is confusing that you have this problem only in the evenings while sleeping. Have you ever experienced something similar during the day when you lie down? You can go to your GP(general practitioner) for standard examinations and s/he can refer you to an ENT-specialist if necessary.
