Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo–the sudden sensation that the room is spinning or your head is spinning. It can be characterized by brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness. Symptoms may be triggered by specific changes in the position of your head, and by lying down, turning over, or sitting up in bed.
