Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of BPPV?

You might feel like the room is spinning around in circles or that your surroundings are moving. This feeling is called "vertigo.” BPPV is associated with feelings of vertigo when you move a certain way (such as turning your head, standing up, rolling over in bed or lying down). You might also feel nauseous (sick to your stomach) at the same time. The nausea and dizziness go away in a few seconds. BPPV is bothersome, but it's rarely serious.
