Re: how long must you wait for bppv to go away

Hi Rwil,
Its different for everyone. You can wait for the "crystals" to dissolve or you can do repositioning exercises which will move them out of there much faster. I found the MEP (Modified Epley Procedure) exercises to be the best/fastest. A trained doctor or vestibular rehabilitation therapist can perform the Epley Maneuver or you can do the Modified Epley at home yourself, twice a day. Check the sticky board for more info.
Good luck and feel better!

Re: how long must you wait for bppv to go away

You're not imagining things - it's what people tend to call "brain fog." It happens because your brain is so busy working to keep you balanced and dealing with the dizziness that it can't seem to do the everyday things anymore. It's very very frustrating - but it is also very common with inner ear disorders.

Yep Rwil...thats the brain fog alright. I think next to the actual dizziness its the worst symptom to deal with. Its a total out of body experience. Its like you are in slow motion and there is a veil between you and the rest of the world that you just cant cut through. It will come and go and eventually, hopefully disappear altogether when you recover. Once your dizziness subsides your brain can begin concentrating on something other than compensating for the balance injury-just like ssdizzy explained.
