About 6 months ago I woke up one morning at 4:00 am got up and couldn't walk
I am 66 years old and have been diagnosed with immune deficiency after having pneumonia so much and I started taking immune o glob ins once a month. Whenwhat I thought was a stroke I was rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed with vertigo, we were in a hotel on a trip and I couldn't travel for a week. I went to an ENT doctor when I got home and and was tested and he said that I had central
Vertigo and I have just been dealing with coming and going episodes. I'm really sick right now with confusion and blurred vision I can't even hardly count money much less drive. I have a bad accessed tooth infection I have been on anti-Boris but it's getting worse I do believe my immune systom is off and was wondering should I continuing mt monthly infusions and if this infection in my mouth gotten taken care of might relive my systoms? Please advise!!!!!

Could it be the anterior canal causing the 'front falls' bending over OR bilateral BPPB?

Hello doctor, i have same problem of vertigo since last 9-10 months and all my doctors are fail to diagnose any parhology and i have gone through lots of investigations....
Please help me to find a solution of this problem.

I have rheumatoid arthritis and was told my bppv has nothing to do with my rheumatoid I asked why all my problems started together and he said it was coincident I have always felt all my symptoms were linked in some way.

Hello Dr. Clark,

I have been experiencing symptoms exactly like the woman you've described in your video. I have a molar that I think has gotten infected. Could it be that the infection has been causing the vertigo? Is my vertigo caused by my body trying to fight this possible infection?

Doctor David

Hope that you are doing well.I would like to request you to advise me over this issue that my younger brother has BPPV symptoms .His age is 24 and he recently he had a street fight with some stoned hooligans and he got a cut on his head which caused him 5 stitches on his head on right side of his skull."a straight cut "

After a week he got his stitches removed and next day he started running with his friends, and when he returned home he almost lost his body balance, and when he wakes up in the morning he could not get a hold of himself by balancing.His symptoms are

1.He gets spins in his head and closes his eyes
2.he can not get up straight away after sleep
3.when he gets up he starts falling backward

we have not consulted any doctor yet in our country and I got so much worried for him being elder that I started doing research and found your videos.Can you please advise us what to for him?Would you advise any medication or exercise or " epley maneuver "?

You are doing some great efforts to help all BPPV patients , I would be grateful to you if you can spare few minutes out of your time and advise me a cure for him.I would personally like to thank you over reading this mail from bottom of my heart .

Kind regards
