BPPV often has a relapsing and remitting course. Recovery can occur spontaneously without treatment, although recurrence is common. Symptoms of vertigo should be confirmed. Symptoms are brought on by specific movements of the head (for example turning over in bed, looking upwards, or bending over).What is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)?
1 Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common of the inner ear disorders. 2 BPPV can affect people of all ages but is most common in people over the age of 60. 3 Most patients can be effectively treated with physical therapy. In rare cases, the symptoms can last for years.When to go to hospital for BPPV?
The person should be advised to return for follow up in 4 weeks if symptoms have not resolved in case BPPV has been incorrectly diagnosed. Admission to hospital should be arranged if there is severe nausea and vomiting and an inability to tolerate oral fluids.How does BPPV cause vertigo and jumping eyes?
The otoconia move to the lowest part of the canal, which causes the fluid to flow within the SCC, stimulating the balance (eighth cranial) nerve and causing vertigo and jumping eyes (nystagmus). People with BPPV can experience a spinning sensation — vertigo — any time there is a change in the position of the head.
