Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). This type of dizziness is more common in women and usually presents as you get older or following head trauma. It is linked to the displacement of crystals of calcium carbonate which becomes dislodged and moves around or attaches to areas it shouldn’t be, resulting in dizziness when you move your head, for example when you roll over in bed.
Meniere’s Disease (MD) usually comes with a warning sign, commonly a fluctuating low frequency hearing loss and tinnitus. You may also feel a pressure sensation in the ear before you are about to feel dizzy. Episodes of dizziness can occur regularly during the acute phase and then usually burns out leaving you with a permanent hearing loss on one side.
Migraine can present itself with similar symptoms as Meniere’s (MD) and can present without any headaches. It is known as migraine associated vertigo.
