Weird Feeling behind & above eyes

I get what I call a "head rush" frequently when I stand up. I also get a strange rush, or feeling like I'm going to pass out or my eyes are crossing or rolling back in my head when I'm having an emotional conversation. It's hard to explain but it is a strange feeling above and or behind my eyes lasting a few seconds. If I stop talking it eases up. It also seems like bright sunlight or flourescent lighting makes it worse.  When I roll from side to side in bed I sometime get a light headed feeling and if I turn my head to a certain angle to look at something the room will sometimes spin and my eyes shift back and forth rapidly for a few seconds. I'm 52 and when I walk for exercise, I sometimes feel light headed or like I'm detached somehow. I also often feel like my scalp is crawling, I have mild headaches, a stiff and sore neck, and occassional shooting pains that move around my head. I'm on Atenolol, Lotensen, Plavix and an 81mg aspirin, for high blood pressure and heart stent. This has been going on for about 3 months. I sound like I'm a real mess! My GP says it is either from the medication or I have some kind of crystals in my inner ear that shift & irritate my equilibrium. Any idea of a potential problem?
