So my doctor suspects I have BPPV - Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Which apparently is a lot of words that mean I have been getting really dizzy a lot lately. They did an EKG which came back normal, and prescribed meclizine to help with the dizziness. As long as my bloodwork doesn't reveal any other issues, they're going with the BPPV diagnosis.
The doctor set me up with a physical therapist, where they will do the "epley maneuver" to try to shift some crystals around in my inner ear that are apparently causing the problem. It's scheduled for right before work. I'm told they basically move your head into different positions to intentionally make you dizzy, which shifts the crystals into a part of your inner ear where they don't make you feel like you've unexpectedly stumbled onto a Tilt-A-Whirl at sporadic times throughout the day.
My question is, has anyone had this done? If so, were you able to function afterwards, or were you dizzy for a while? How bad is it? I'm debating whether to take the morning off.
