Q. How do I get rid of BPPV?

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo may go away on its own within a few weeks or months. But, to help relieve BPPV sooner, your doctor, audiologist or physical therapist may treat you with a series of movements known as the canalith repositioning procedure.

Q. What should you not do with BPPV?

For at least one week, avoid provoking head positions that might bring BPPV on again:

  1. Use two pillows when you sleep.
  2. Avoid sleeping on the “bad” side.
  3. Don’t turn your head far up or far down.

Q. How long does it take for ear crystals to dissolve?

Without treatment, the symptoms of BPPV may persist. However, with time (usually within 6 weeks), the otoconia dissolve on their own. Until then, the number and severity of episodes may be reduced simply by paying careful attention to head position.

Q. What is the best way to sleep with BPPV?

Many experts recommend that you try and sleep on your back, as the crystals within your ear canals are less likely to become disturbed and trigger a vertigo attack. If you happen to get up in the middle of the night, rise slowly as opposed to making any sudden movements with the head or the neck.

Q. Why am I still dizzy after Epley maneuver?

If you still have symptoms after doing the home Epley maneuver, call your healthcare provider. You may not be doing the maneuver the right way. Or you may have another problem that’s causing your symptoms of vertigo. The home Epley maneuver only works to treat vertigo from BPPV.

Q. How should I sleep to avoid BPPV?

This means sleep with your head halfway between being flat and upright (a 45 degree angle). This is most easily done by using a recliner chair or by using pillows arranged on a couch. During the day, try to keep your head vertical.
