Benign positional vertigo (BPPV) is a sensation of spinning, a form of dizziness. This sensation happens for a few minutes and stops automatically. Benign positional vertigo is related to the labyrinth system which is present inside the inner ear and is responsible for maintaining balance in the body. Sometimes, the free floating particles in the inner ear exert a force to cause benign positional vertigo symptoms. Other causes for benign positional vertigo symptoms include viral infection, nerve inflammation, complications after the ear surgery, side effects of medication and rapid head movement. Nausea, sweating, abnormal eye movements and vomiting are the common symptoms caused by benign positional vertigo. Other symptoms include visual disturbance, hearing loss, and difficulty in speaking and walking. Benign positional vertigo is treated by simple exercises such as Epley maneuver or Brandt–Daroff. Benign positional vertigo treatment is done by the Dix–Hallpike test to determine the posterior semicircular canal involvement and Roll test to check the horizontal semicircular canal involvement. Benign positional vertigo treatment is also done by medications and surgeries. Medication involved in benign positional vertigo treatment by drug class are anti-histamine, anti-cholinergic, and anti-depressant or sedative-hypnotics.
