BPPV: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is caused by abnormal fluid flow in the inner ear. There is a procedure called the Epley Manuver. Many physical therapists can do it and they can even teach you to do it at home if it ever comes back. BE CAREFUL and make sure someone provides you neck support when you do it, or see a physical therapist capable of performing Epley Manurer
