User :   Hi - I am a 39-year old femae and believe I have BPPV (for two months now). I have some ear popping going on, too. This started out more severe, and became better over time. I thought it had cleared up, but last week and this week had another mild episode (rolling over in bed, looking at ceiling). I can always stop the spinning by moving my head back. See an ENT on Monday. Is this serious?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Benign paroxysmal postural vertigo are non serious conditions.
Doctor :   They do not cause any serious disturbances except for the vertigo/dizziness.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
Doctor :   Do you have any other query that I can assist you with?
Doctor :   Are you there?
Doctor :   It seems you have moved out of the chat window. Please log in back if you have medical queries.
