Brandt-Daroff exercise:

  • Start in an upright, seated position.
  • Move into the lying position on one side with your nose pointed up at about a 45-degree angle.
  • Remain in this position for about 30 seconds (or until the vertigo subsides, whichever is longer). Then move back to the seated position.
  • Repeat on the other side.

While medications may help with some of the symptoms like nausea, the only effective treatments for BPPV are repositioning procedures. The official name for these exercises is “particle-repositioning maneuvers” (PRM). Your clinician may perform one of several techniques, among them:

  • the Lempert 360° roll maneuver,
  • the Semont maneuver,
  • the Gufoni method,
  • the Vannuchi Asprella method,
  • the Barbecue roll method,
  • and the Epley maneuver.

Each involves a series of body, head, and neck movements. The procedure may need to be repeated a number of times.

Had vertigo so bad ended up in hospital,I have major sinus and asthma is now coming back,that can I do?

Control your asthma with medications or inhalers.
As for the vertigo, you can do little except avoid some triggers, such as a given position,emotional and/or physical distress, and sudden change of velocity/direction of your head
