Vertigo or BPPV
Benign Positional Vertigo is a benign but distressing condition of brief but severe vertigo or spinning usually brought on by position changing such as rolling over in bed to one side or by looking up or bending down. The vertigo or spinning may be accompanied by nausea and occasionally by vomiting. The episode usually resolves quickly by turning back away from the position that provoked it. A “hangover” effect may last for several minutes.
Benign Positional Vertigo is by its name Benign but can be frightening. It may lead to falls and incapacity as far as ability to drive without fear of uncontrolled although brief vertigo. Treatment consists of non-invasive repositioning of the loose particles in the inner ear that cause the vertigo. Until you are able to visit your Specialist you may take DizzyStop® for relief. The condition often resolves spontaneously over a few days to a few weeks.
