In brief: Vertigo exercises
Vertigo is often best treated by simple exercises.
Many times the problem is due to crystals in the tiny inner ear canals, especially if the vertigo is triggered by looking up or down or rolling over in bed. Sit in the middle of a couch; lie down on your side (to the side that cause the dizziness), sit up, then lie down on the other side. Repeat 5 to 10 times one after another, twice daily.

In brief: Dix-Hallpike Rx help
True vertigo is usually an inner ear problem.
Acutely it can be from an infection - time and a medication called "antivert" can help. More chronic conditions can be from fuid or even small stones in the inner ear mechanism. Some simple maneuvers (dix-hallpike and epley) can often bring dramatic relief. Vertigo can also be associated with some serious problems so get it checked out if it is ongoing.
