Why Did I Get Dizzy On Land (after 5 Days On Water)

Hello Sailnet,
This blog has been very helpful for me while I have been preparing for my first trip on a sailboat. Could someone answer a question? After 5 days on the water in a 40ft. sailboat (first time sailing and we loved it!) This may be a dumb question: While sitting at a restaurant immediately following 5 days on the water was I so dizzy I almost became ill, this lasted for at least 2 hours. The room felt like it was moving, I was uncomfortable I was so dizzy. Could I be getting "land sick" as opposed to "sea sick"??
