Persons with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, briefly known as BPPV, can experience symptoms such as episodes of dizziness or light-headedness, a spinning sensation (vertigo), unsteadiness, loss of balance and nausea. Motion sickness or rapid eye movement can be common signs also.
It is generally triggered by sudden changes in head position, such as tipping the head up or down. It is rarely serious unless it affects the risk of falling. BPPV is most defiantly treatable, however a formal diagnosis must be made by your GP to allow treatment by a Physiotherapist.
