Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is dizziness caused by particles of debris in the inner ear. The dizziness often occurs when you move your head in certain positions. Sometimes the dizziness is accompanied by nausea (feeling sick).
In many cases BPPV clears up on its own after several weeks. However if your dizziness is continues to bother you, your GP may refer you to specialist.

Treatment can include prescription medication to control nausea and special movements performed by your consultant to dislodge the debris in your ear.
