Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) Treatment
Self-Care at Home
Prevention begins by maintaining good hydration and avoiding rapid movements of the head. Should symptoms of vertigo begin, the following suggestions may be helpful:
- Lie down with the head elevated slightly. Take precautions to prevent falls.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- In the midst of a vertigo attack, do not drive, work at heights, or operate dangerous machinery since loss of balance may cause significant injury.
