Dizziness & Vertigo Support Group

Dizziness is the sensation of instability. Vertigo refers to dizziness with a sensation of motion. Vertigo is more likely than other types of dizziness to be associated with nausea, vomiting, or double vision, to occur even when lying down, and to feel better with the eyes closed. If you are a frequent sufferer of dizziness or vertigo, join the group and find support.

    BPPV spin direction

    Hi AllOccasionally I get BPPV. I know how to do the epley but sometimes I'm not entirely sure which ear is problematic. I've noticed that when I think it's my right ear I spin (my perspective) clockwise and when it's the left ear I spin anticlockwise. My Physio thinks I have this correct, can anyone confirm please.
