Re: Need Help from BPPV sufferers
Yes, you can have fairly long attacks. When I was first diagnosed my attacks would last many seconds -- maybe as long as a minute or more. As I have figured out how to deal with the bppv -- which occasionally goes away only to return -- my attacks last only a few seconds. Still, they are quite disconcerting, to say the least.
I think bppv is worse when it starts. After a while, it seems to calm down. Of course, I am very careful now about moving my head, too. And I sleep in one position only, night after night, which really sucks and is ruining my shoulder.
