ENT Specialist Dr. Sumit Bhatti's  Response
1. BPPV (Benigh Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) is a distinct possibility as you have a history of waking up with vertigo and a history of skin diving the previous day. Your vertigo is severe, short lasting and occurs on change of position.

2. Get your hearing tested by PTA (Pure Tone Audiometry) and middle ear pressure checked by Impedance Audiometry (I/A).

3. Get your ears examined to rule out infection. There are many other causes of vertigo which can be ruled out. Mild inner ear infection is a possibility after skin diving and should settle quickly.

4. If it is BPPV, medication is of no use and particle re-positioning maneuvers are required.
