Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff
If you experience dizziness associated with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), consider these tips:
  • Be aware of the possibility of losing your balance, which can lead to falling and serious injury.
  • Sit down immediately when you feel dizzy.
  • Use good lighting if you get up at night.
  • Walk with a cane for stability if you're at risk of falling.
  • Work closely with your doctor to manage your symptoms effectively.

BPPV may recur even after successful therapy. Fortunately, although there's no cure, the condition can be managed with physical therapy and home treatments.
