Yes I have had this. I have chronic vertigo and at times I have had the careening to one side thing. Do you have a lesion on your cerebellum or your brain stem? Both of those locations cause balance and vertigo problems. If this is a new problem and it lasts you need to talk to your doctor. You may want your ears checked. This could be an inner ear infection as well. Good luck with getting some relief.
I hope this is better for you now, but wanted to let you know I also have this, and mine is due to a lesion on my cerebellum. Please be careful as this kind of thing can lead to falls. I find that touching walls, furniture etc helps me keep my balance.
