“Now I Feel Like A Free Bird” Diagnosis and Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo Of A Male Professor in Asian Neuro Center

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a disorder arising from a problem in the inner ear Symptoms are repeated, brief periods of vertigo with movement, characterized by a spinning sensation upon changes in the position of the head. This can occur with turning in bed or changing position  Each episode of vertigo typically lasts less than one minute. Nausea is commonly associated with BPPV is one of the most common causes of vertigo The vertigo sensation can range from mild to severe and usually lasts only a few minutes. It may be accompanied by other symptoms, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • A sense of imbalance
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting


BPPV develops when calcium carbonate crystals, which are known as otoconia, shift into and become trapped within the semicircular canals (one of the vestibular organs of the inner ear that control balance). The otoconia make up a normal part of the structure of the utricle, a vestibular organ next to the semicircular canals. (See illustration.)

In the utricle, the otoconia may be loosened because of injury, infection, or age. They land in a sac – the utricle – where they are naturally dissolved. However, otoconia in the semicircular canals will not dissolve. As a person’s head position changes, the otoconia begin to roll around and push on the tiny hair-like processes (cilia) within the semicircular canals. Those cilia help to transmit information about balance to the brain. Vertigo develops when the cilia are stimulated by the rolling otoconia.

  • Paroxysmal—appears suddenly, and in episodes of short duration: lasts only seconds to minutes
  • Positional—is induced by a change in position, even slight
  • Vertigo—spinning dizziness, which must have a rotational component
  • Torsional nystagmus—a diagnostic symptom where the top of the eye rotates toward the affected ear in a beating or twitching fashion, which has a latency and can be fatigued (vertigo should lessen with deliberate repetition of the provoking maneuver): nystagmus should only last for 30 seconds to one minute
  • Pre-syncope—(feeling faint) or syncope(fainting) is unusual but possible
  • Visual disturbance—due to associated nystagmus, making it difficult to read or see during an attack
  • Nausea—is often associated
  • Vomiting—is common, depending on the strength of vertigo itself and the causes for this illness
