Vertigo can be a sign of TMJ problems.  You had problems with the jaw before starting your Invisalign.  Moving the teeth triggered more symptoms.  You need to go back to your doctor to be evaluated.  Your case is more complicated and the doctor is aware you had a problem before beginning treatment.
