@Donshel ,
Good luck, first of all, I hope you/doctors find the problem.

I'm one who tends to push people to go to university medical centers, but they are not equal over the world or country or even in one city. Usually they have clinics if you can't afford a specific specialist doctor among their listed staff, and my own clinic experience has been excellent, though I'm just one person with an opinion. I also ran a lab (now a while ago) next to a rheumatology clinic, and went to their conferences and rounds - and what I observed was a certain need for docs to shine, to turn out to be right about a diagnosis, along with discussions and info sharing re symptoms... so there was a certain energy for finding out what is going on in various health situations.

i'm 51, and have been experiencing dizzy spells for two weeks now... i sympathize with those who have had them for years -- they are
not fun, and i too would not wish them on my worst enemy.

the day i started getting them began with an intense dizzy spell in my sleep, followed by nausea and vomiting... i saw my doctor later
that day -- he diagnosed it as BPPV and gave me ten days worth of Meclizine and something for the nausea.

the nausea meds helped immediately, but the Meclizine did not seem to help much.

thankfully, i haven't had another intense spell, but i've had at least one small one every day for the past two weeks -- either from getting
into bed, rolling over (either side, doesn't matter) or getting out of bed... ocassionally i get one from tiliting my head straight back.

i have quickly learned to stay calm when they happen and ride it out -- after a few seconds i'm fine.

i've also learned to be very mindful of the position of my head at all times, and to try to avoid any sudden head movements...

I have been reading these posts because I've had the same symptoms, but its been happening during the day, starts out with
swimmy kind of eyes, like under water then black out spots, eyebdrvsaid it could be vascular, silent migrain

i have experienced this from time to time when in bed at night... i've also had an occasional popping sensation in my left ear when
in bed -- it sounds like there's a miniature bass guitar player in there...

i'm thankful that, for the most part, i'm fine during the day... but i'm also troubled that many people suffer from this, and there doesn't
seem to be a definitive cure out there (yet)...

@Region Philbis,
Nuts, I'm sorry about that. Hang in there. I know you know how to research; good luck on the hunt and with the docs.

I'm a fainter (differing reasons from BPPV). So far so good....

Have had daytime vertigo for a little more than ten years. It began after a backward fall where I hit a spot just back of the ear. Clears up for me with meclizine, carry some with me all the time. Seems to be be brought on not just by head position but seasonally with humidity playing a role. (a long history of ear infections and fluid which builds up in the ear canal even when there isn't an infection). Can go months at a time, just fine and then it returns.

still not better, so i saw an ENT yesterday -- they gave me a hearing test, vision test,
two Epley maneuvers, and was told to sleep in a recliner last night.

didn't sleep too well, but feeling pretty normal so far today...

@maxpower hd,
Check out benign positional vertigo. Just need a specialist that treats for this.

@maxpower hd,
I went through a similar period, about three years, turns out I wasn't coping with my stress as well as I thought and was having anxiety / panic attacks. I've learned to manage my stress better and it all went away.

Not saying that's your problem, just sharing an experience!
