Re: Vertigo after surgery
Sounds like you had something very similar - apparently bppv can come, last for a few days to months and then the vertigo disappears without any reason. When you don't have it all your tests are normal (as with you) otherwise when tested you get wild eye movements in certain positions which cause the symptoms. I've looked it up, it can also occur at the hairdresser or dentist when the head is positioned back.
I posted this on the inner ear board to see if it was associated with surgery or anyone there had any information - no answers yet. It's thought to be due to the collection of debris in the inner ear so when you suddenly move into certain positions you body cannot adjust quickly enough. If you want to check it out there's a lot of good information if you google 'bppv'
Glad your symptoms resolved spontaneously. Mine did initially and have come back with a vengance, hopefully won't last long.
