Lightheaded ?: If you were lightheaded (feeling like you're going to pass out), that it may not be BPPV. That is usually more a spinning sensation when you turn your head or get up out of bed. If the lightheadedness occurs when you go from lying to sitting or sitting to standing there tomorrow blood pressure issue. Please see your primary care provider if the symptoms continue.
