I waited a little while but not long.
Last summer, exactly one full year since my first BPPV attack, I was stretching on the floor and I noticed a blip in my vision. I had been 100% for about 8 months prior to this event. I thought that wasn't good, so I went to my bed and did the MEP and no symptoms showed up. I felt like crap for the afternoon, sort of sea sick, so later that afternoon I did it again. My right ear is affected so I do it with my right ear down in the first position. Well I went through all three positions no problem and when I sat up, I felt off and10 sec later spun like crazy for about 15 seconds...so something was out of place. I did the MEP again before bed and didn't have any symptoms again in any position and continued doing them for a couple of weeks as a precaution. It took me a few weeks to start to feel back to my old self again, but very curious as to where exactly those crystals were to cause the vertigo in the sit-up position.
This summer, one year almost to the day again, I had another slight episode where I would do the MEP and I wouldn't spin but my eyes were actually doing some nystagmus almost like they were trying very hard not to spin, my head was aching, like it was working overtime to figure out why my vestibular system was feeding it the wrong info from the eyes...very interesting. but nothing since so that's great.
Keep at it, sounds like you are on your way to recovery.
