I am 66 and have had vertigo episodes for 3 years, usually months inbetween episodes. About three weeks ago I awoke with a bad one, couldn't raise my head without the world spinning. I remembered the manuever my Dr used the last time I went to her and laying on my left side I turned my head as far left as I could and after a couple minutes sat up very slowly and I was ok. Then had similar episodes over the next few days, much more frequently than usual. I then realized these episodes started about the time I started using my first electric toothbrush! It is the ocolating back and forth type that vibrates and I noticed it vibrated my whold head. I stoped using it and guess what?? My vertigo stopped! Not saying it cured my vertigo but I believe it had an effect on my inner ear and brought on the vertigo. You may want to try not using one for a while!
