Common cause of dizziness or vertigo: BPPV

Common cause of vertigo: BPPV Dizziness – particularly the sensation you or the room around you is spinning – has got to be one of the most unpleasant sensations we can experience. Benign positional paroxsymal (episodic) vertigo (BPPV) is one of the more common causes of dizziness. When moving your head, rolling over in bed or moving from lying down to sitting up, it triggers a severe spinning sensation that can make you feel really nauseated and even induce vomiting. This is absolutely treatable with Epley Manouever – a series of positional head movements and has a 90-95% sucess rate on the first attempt.
