Bppv. We read that sleeping, sitting up, could help. Is this true? What other way could help besides the epley maneuver?

In brief: Exercises

The exercise therapies are the best treatment for benign positional vertigo brandt-daroff maneuvers can help if epley does not.
Sit on the side of the bed, then lay down on your side of the affected ear. Sit up again, then lay down on the opposite side. Repeat 5 times in a row, twice daily.
