Positional vertigo, known also as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, is among the most general triggers of vertigo that is the sudden feeling of recurring, severe spells of dizziness that arise due to certain movements. This sensation can be felt inside the head. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo causes dizziness that can be mild or intense. This condition can be bothersome, but it is often not serious and treatment is usually effective.
Positional vertigo is characterized by recurring, severe attacks of vertigo that arise due to certain movements. The organ of equilibrium is connected to the inner ear. The tiniest piece of the organ of equilibrium can become displaced after an accident, from an injury, or due to infection of the inner ear. When these particles move freely in the organ of equilibrium, they can irritate the organ and cause dizziness.
Positional vertigo is the most common cause of dizziness and women are twice more afftected then men. Patients complain of recurrent, severe spinning sensations that may last several minutes and then suddenly disappear on their own. Positioning the head in certain ways can summon an attack. Attacks may also be accompanied by nausea. Dizziness can be solved with using certain maneuvers.
The patient may find the disorder to be inconvenient, but the disorder itself is not dangerous. Treatment for the patient consists of maneuvering the patient into certain positions or of executing a series of head positions. Normally, dizziness disappears within days or weeks. It’s possible that symptoms reappear.
