Feeling dizzy

Feeling dizzy: This is a quote from http://www.everydayhealth.com/health-questions/dizziness/why-do-i-get-dizzy-when-i-move-my-head-in-certain-ways "... When you have BPPV you find that certain positions seem to bring it on. (like bending over and turning your head to look up under a table. Or leaning your head way back to look straight up. Sometimes it's only at night when you roll into the right position and awaken right in the middle of the whirling. Between attacks often you may just feel a little unstable in space or spacey. The crystals often replace themselves. If they don't they can be treated almost 100% of the time by a series of rotational manuevers called the Epley Maneuvers. (BTW Dr. Epley is my personal vertigo physician Smile) Untreated some people suffer periodically for decades. URL: http://able2know.org/topic/76330-2 URL: http://able2know.org/topic/76330-2
