Dizziness - Paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)

Positional vertigo (often called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo. This condition is characterised by a sudden sensation of rotation or movement which is triggered by a change in head position. It can include symptoms such as nausea and loss of balance.
Diagnosis is often made using the Dix-Hallpike Maneuver, a test where the patient is quickly moved from a sitting position to a lying position with the head tilted to the side. A positive reaction to this test usually confirms the diagnosis.


The underlying causes of this condition are not fully understood, but may include aging, head injury and certain types of medication.


  • A sudden spinning sensation
  • Nausea
  • Loss of balance
  • Feeling unsteady when moving
