Dizziness When Laying Down
A few thots: Maybe a local inner ear issue on the left, or perhaps, arterial compression in neck due to position, or even intracranial issues such as colloid cyst presentation. In some cases, a videonystagmogram will provide localization and therapeutic directions. If inner ear, an epley maneuver may work wonders. ...Read more
Have had multiple episodes of dizziness when going to lay down on back with head tilted to left side. Coincidence or problem?
Vertigo: Does it feel like the room is spinning around you? Especially since you describe your dizziness occurring in a particular position, you may have benign positional vertigo (BPV). Visit your physician for an exam. Your physician can perform the Epley maneuver to try to treat you. Try to avoid the position that causes your dizziness. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001420.htm ...Read more

2 mnths ago i was hit with BPPV (left ear). I still sometimes feel dizzy or get mild vertigo while laying to left or turning left after laying down.
Epley Maneuver: When BPPV returns, you can just start doing the Epley Maneuver again until it resolves. There's great diagrams and videos of it online. Just google "Epley Maneuver" and/or search it in YouTube. Hope that helps and hope you feel better soon. I'm available for consults if you'd like to discuss further. ...Read more
When I lay on left ear I get dizzy and it isn't always. Now and then. I've had sinus problems ENT ruled out bppv and Mineres. What else could be?
Get thee to a doctor: Dizziness may be benign, but if you can reproduce symptoms with neck positioning, it may signify arterial insufficiency that could make it more likely for you to have a posterior circulatory stoke. You need to see a neurologist for evaluation to separate this condition from an inner ear or sinus problem. ...Read more
Concussion: You may be experiencing some mild concussion symptoms. However, should your symptoms worsen or you develop vomiting or lethargy, a trip to the emergency room is warranted.

Why do I get dizzy and nausea when i tilt my head back is it my ears , and can this be causing me to feel sick a lot .
No: The main thing you worry about here is cardiac issues. I would recommend you have a cardiac workup to be safe. Beyond cardiac, you may have decreased blood pressure when standing, or orthostatic hypotension, still need to be assessed for this. You may be dehydrated as this can mimic many of the same symptoms. Hope that helps! ...Read more
