Neurologist 's  Response
Hi,

These are suggestive of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). The diagnosis of BPPV can be confirmed on the basis of clinical examination. Please see a vertigo (ENT/Neuro) specialist. In most cases, the disease can be treated by a bedside manoeuvre- Epley's manoeuvre.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
