Prolbably not: Bppv is typically a disease of the elderly. It causes brief dizziness produced by certain head movements. If you have prolonged dizziness, then periods of no dizziness, you have a different cause. At your age, migraine headaches are a possibility. An MRI of the brain is recommended to rule out other causes.
