    BPPV Question

    Could someone please explain how you have 'episodes' of BPPV? I am a bit confused as I have had what I think is BPPV for about 2 years now and I would never describe it as episodic. Mine is with me all the time and has never gone, but the vertigo will only happen if I tilt my head in certain positions. So if I avoid those positions, I wouldn't even know I had it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: BPPV Question

    Hello,
    My husband was just dx with positional vertigo. He feel spinny and dizzy when getting into bed, getting out of bed, looking up and looking down. He says he better when not doing those things. From what he tells me, he's ok driving and throughout the day unless moving his head, like looking up and down.

    I have been dx with vestibular neuritis in 2012, thought I was getting better in 2013, then started having problems again in Sept 2013 so I went to neuro-otologist. He dx me with MAV (migraine associated vertigo). I'm still seeing that doctor to figure out what's going on with me. I hope you get some answers. Have you seen an ENT or a neuro-otologist.
    Take care,
    Nicole

    Thank you for your reply Nicole.

    Yes I have seen an ENT 4 times now, initially diagnosed with BPPV and uncompensated Labs. Epleys and exercises haven't helped so now they are referring me to neurologist as they believe it could be MAV. iv had numerous tests including MRI and CT scan so guess this is the next avenue to explore!

    Apart from the BPPV I also have a 24/7 drunken feeling and most days have head/eye pressure and ears feel blocked.

    I hope you and your husband find the answers you need.

    Take care x

    Hello again,
    Have you been given any medication to help? If it is MAV, a lot of people have tried a migraine preventative. I hope you get better soon.
    Take care,
    Nicole

    No medication yet as I am still waiting to see the neurologist to see if he agrees with my ENTs views.

    I'm still not convinced its MAV but can understand why they think it might be.

    fingers crossed for some answers!
