Re: Chronic Mild Positional Vertigo (>4 yrs). BPPV or CPPV?
The positional nature and fatiguing, and latency of the vertigo are classic signs of BPPV. It is unlikely that you have a central problem or lesion. You most likely have BPPV of the posterior canal, which can be treated with 1 or 2 Epley maneuvers. However, you must first diagnose which ear is the problematic one. If you cant figure out which side is the bad one, then treat one side with 3 Epley maneuvers daily for seven days. If you still have vertigo, then treat the other side the same way the following week. There is a 95% chance that your BPPV will be cured with this method. If not, then you need to see an ENT.
