travel and BPPV

Hi

I am new to this message board and was hopeing to find some help/information if anyone has tried to travel wiht BPPV.
I had labrynthitis following decending in an aircreft in 2007, which then lasted with 3 days of vomiting and not being able to walk straight, i have not been the same since and occasionally get dizzy attacks, not the spinning kind, but like you are tipsy or intoxicated.
after seeing many specialist in Austraila I have just recenlty been diagnosed with BPPV. As i haven't really done much for the last 4 years and have been on blocking medicationfor the last 6 months.i would love holiday, but no one can tell me the risks of flying again, i don't want this to get any worse than what it is.
