    I've had several bouts of BPV in the last 5 or so years. It really sucks and there is no way to stay consistent when they hit. Luckily, through online research I discovered the "epley maneuver" that doctors had not told me about. I got the missus to assist me with the maneuver and presto the relief was almost immediate and I was back to normal within a day or so.

    Hope you can find the answers you seek and get relief soon. That **** is no fun at all.

    Have you seen an ENT? There are so many different causes for vertigo. I had problems with it for four years, but that was before I was weight training. I would NOT have been able to train through the worst parts though, and would have had difficulty even on the better days, I think. The best guess anyone had on my vertigo is that it was triggered by systemic inflammation from a separate autoimmune disease (celiac). I stopped having problems with vertigo once my celiac was diagnosed and brought under control.

    Consistent?

    Nope.

    Onset of the last round I was stumbling badly, couldn't drive myself home, and vomiting once I got there.

    Took a long time to resolve. Did what I could to work around it.

    Also suggest the Epley maneuver. For me that took multiple rounds with professional help.

    I think it was my most severe so far, but I have had at least 3 or 4 bad bouts prior to the last one.

    Re: the Epley maneuver, it can work very well if the cause of your vertigo is related to crystals in the inner ear that need to be repositioned. It never worked for me, because the cause of my vertigo wasn't related to crystals. But yeah, definitely another reason to go see an ENT and try to determine the cause, in case there *is* something like the Epley that OP can do to help her specific situation. Because anything that can potentially relieve a vertigo attack is pure gold...

    Had it a few times. A couple times it was really bad. Did the maneuvers but whether they worked or not I'm not sure. Not sure what brought it on or what made it go away, but it went away in at most a few days.
