Nystagmus benign paroxysmal positional is the most common cause of vertigo — the sudden feeling that you’re rotating or that the inner part of your head is whirling. It produces dizziness ranging from mild to severe.
It is frequently brought on by alterations in the posture of your head, mainly while sleeping. You risk developing this condition each time you change positions in bed, including laying down, rolling over, sitting up, or tilting your head up or down.
Benign paroxysmal positional nystagmus may be unpleasant, but it is not often harmful unless it increases the risk of falling. During your visit to the doctor’s office, you may get an effective treatment for benign paroxysmal positional nystagmus.
