BPPV

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have sufferred with this distressing condition for 5 years now and attend my local hospital to have one to one exercises with an Audiologist. At times my balance is out of control and I walk as if I am drunk.  At times my right eye bobbs up and down when I turn to the right.  Last year I had labrynitus and vertigo and landed up in hospital for 2 weeks.

    Where are you, Marion? I am in Australia. I have had vertigo since 23/3/2015 and am hoping it will go. I have been told the crystals are like ice in water and should melt if not gone from exercises before that. The next step for me is to see a physiotherapist. Hope you can get relief!

      I live in South Wales, United Kingdom and have suffered with vertigo for 4 years. I attend my local hospital for exercises with an Audiologist. At times my balance is really bad and I walk as if I am drunk. My right eye also bobs and it is at this time when my balance is worse. I have had all the tests, MRI scan, turning my head at different angles trying to get the crystals back into the right pockets. I have now been told to walk with a stick when out walking alone.
