BPPV? what is this? i suffer vertigo...

Have suffered from regular attacks of vertigo after suffering from the inner ear disorder labyrinthitis twenty years ago which suddenly struck again earlier this year. i feel dizzy upon moving my head to look up or down and especially when getting up from a sitting or lying position. it is very disturbing, and limits what i can and can't do. for instance when recently decorating there was no way i could paint the ceiling and though i love swimming i am scared that i will suffer an attack when in the water. i am only in my forties and do not want to be a martyr to this. the doctor suggested i see a specialist but didn't hold out much hope that intervention would work.
please help!

Hi Camran

Of all the Vestibular Injuries BPPV (in most cases) is the easiest to cure/fix--and it is not unusual for Lab to weaken the Inner Ear Structure which allows BPPV to happen.

U can read---in the:

"Sticky---first post on the board"

what BPPV is about and how it is fixed---with the "Epley or Modified Epley" procedure(s) etc........

In short BPPV happens when some of the crystals in ur "Inner Ear" fall/roll out of where the belong---and into one of ur inner ear "Semi-Circle Canals"

---the procedures(done in the Doc's office) puts them back---where they belong---sometimes the procedure needs to be done more then once.....
