Vertigo and Dizziness - Epley Manoeuvre it..
" Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) causes short episodes of vertigo (intense dizziness) when you move your head in certain directions. It it thought to be caused by tiny fragments of debris in the inner ear labyrinth. In many cases the condition clears away on its own after several weeks. A simple treatment of moving the head into various positions over a few minutes can cure the condition in many cases. This treatment uses gravity to move the debris away from where it is causing problems. "...http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Beni...al-Vertigo.htm
if your vertigo/dizziness/lightheadedness is benign, this is what you do...if the symptoms persist, means your inner ear may be seriously affected and you are best off visiting a specialist - who will probably try this on you first...
be careful to get it right - do follow the instructions closely.. l
