To help restore some balance to lungs,heart and brain try this for up to 20 minutes, three times day. Alternate nostril breathing (keep eyes closed) - breathe in from one nostril and out from the other. After you breathe out, breathe back in from same nostril. Iniitially if you feel dizzy, stop and resume after one minute - but do pursue.
Please come back with your feedback, so others can benefit.

Have you been evaluated for migraines? Because what you are going through kind of sounds like that. I have migraines, and some of my attacks are just as you describe, with either no headache at all or sometimes just a slight headache. It might be time to visit a neurologist, and see if the neurologist thinks you are having migraines. Some people refer to a migraine without a headache as a "silent migraine." Good luck on getting this figured out, but that's what I would investigate next: migraines.
I'm afraid of hitting a brick wall and not being able to find any treatment or cure for migraines. Nonetheless, i'll still try it!
Good. Let us know what you find out.
Can definitely be migraines.
There is a book, Heal Your Headache, by Dr. David Buchholz, that is extremely helpful for migraine sufferers. On page 170, he talks about that fact that a lot of chronic vertigo patients are actually having migraines. Many of those folks are misdiagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and fail to respond to treatment for that, but oftentimes they do respond to treatment for migraines. Also, after responding to your post, Pkersdemise, I googled physical activity + migraine, and it seems that exercise is a migraine trigger for some people.
BTW, I think you're safe in calling this experience vertigo, regardless of what the ENT specialist said. Vertigo is defined by the symptoms, not by the cause. When the ENT doc said you weren't having vertigo, I believe what he or she may have meant is that your symptoms aren't caused by an inner ear problem. But feeling that the environment is spinning around you is vertigo, and that's the word that I would use in talking to doctors, because that gives them a starting point in understanding what you are going through.
It's usual for all medical tests to be normal for migraine patients. Migraine is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning that everything else is ruled out, so you must be having migraines. It can be hard to get a diagnosis, for that reason: all your tests are normal. It can be especially tricky to correctly identify migraines when your symptoms do not include headache, but that's still the next possibility I would consider. I don't think your previous tests and consultations were a waste, because everything other than migraine has to be ruled out. Again, good luck.
