Reoccuring BPPV

I am experiencing just under a year of on and off again BPPV. The effects are debilitating and frustrating to say the least. I have seen my specialist reguarly for months and his only suggestion is to continue the Epley Mnvr. He also states that most people have great success with the Epley ( I do not). I am the mother to 2 young daughters and a husband with a very busy work schedule and this is making normal every day life awful. I am fishing for suggestions or advise from others who suffer from this illness. Is it common to have 3 separate occurances in 8 months that last for weeks or months at a time? What have you guys found helpful with treating the illness or dealing with the symptoms? Thanks

Re: Reoccuring BPPV

Have you tried antivert? I know it is horrible and I can go for months and feel fine and then out of the blue wake up during the night with everything spinning. It can last for days too and having to work feeling this way is awful. I cannot imagine having little ones to take care of. I came to the conclusion Vertigo is a mystery to the medical profession and they really do not know what to tell patients.
