Hi Jo,

Very timely for me!!! I suffer from BPV from time to time and woke at 3am this morning to the world going round and threatening to make me throw up. It has settled now quite a bit but I always take comfort when I read something which reminds me that it is not my fault these things happen.

Hi Judy,

 

I'm glad you found the article interesting.

 

My husband suffers with Meniere's Disease, which has the same symptoms of nausea and dizziness. It's settled down a bit more now, but on one occasion he collapsed vomiting in the street - very embarrassing and the worse thing was that the passers by thought he was drunk and were stepping around him and looking disgusted! He was totally mortified, but when an attack comes on there's nothing he can do about it, poor soul! :(

Hi Jo,

One thing about BPV is that it involves the inner ear canals and if you can keep your head perfectly still you can usually avoid the actual vomiting. You just look like a Robot!!!

Just try keeping your head still for an hour or two!!!! not easy.
