Can you stand on 1 leg with your eyes closed?


My doctor thinks I have BPPV. I'm not so sure since my attacks don't last minutes but days.

Anyways, I can stand fine on 2 legs close together, eyes open and eyes closed.
Can also stand fine on one leg (either one) for minutes.

But I can stand on one leg when I close my eyes.

Is this normal?

Can you stand on one leg with your eyes closed?

Re: Can you stand on 1 leg with your eyes closed?

I can't do it and have asked many people the same question.. I have BPPV and migraine assosciated vertigo. At one point in all my problems, I lost my sense of balance or center of gravity..

One of my doctors recently made the mistake of asking me to stand up, once up she told me to stand on one foot and I did and then she said "Close your eyes", so I did.. and over I went.. I have done 2 rounds of physical therapy and they want me to do another.. I see no reason because I can do the same things at home and get rid of it but the first time the weather changes, I got it back again..
