Re: BPPV , can u please share expirence with the elpley - did it work for u ?

H Kapi...I've had BPPV attacks for pretty much my whole life...but have had long periods without any. It started in 1966..right ear, and in 1999 it started as well in my left ear.

Interestingly, the maneuver that I had done for my right ear was the Semont, and it still works for that ear. The left ear...entirely different beast...the Epley works best for me. I do both for myself now...not wasting time to have the doctor do it since I now don't have one and wait forever to get it (with no symptoms by that time and they return the next day...go figure).

I had a stint of 2 years 24/7...and it being in both ears at the same time. Hope to never go through that again.

That's the time I was introduced to the Epley, and with doing it at home, it at least gives one the control of doing it as needed at first symptoms.


Have you checked out some videos of how to do it properly?
