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.....
