Could it be bppv as it happened as soon as I stood up from waking from sleep ...does vertigo/dizziness on its own mainly mean something non serious

Dear customer,

Thank you for staying online

I am sorry to hear about your problem and I can understand how uncomfortable you may be feeling but hopefully, we can resolve this.

The symptoms you have described of having vertigo/dizziness can be due to various causes.

Yes, it can be due to ear disease such as BPPV

The ears are organs that provide two main functions —

1.Hearing

2. Balance of head & body

Problems in the inner ear are the most frequent cause of dizziness. It is caused by a disturbance within the balance organs of the inner ear. The inner ear contains 3 semi-circular canals that function like a gyroscope, relaying information about head position and movement to the brain.

When fluid volume or pressure in one inner ear changes, information about balance is altered. This causes the sending of wrong messages to the brain about your body's position. This results in vertigo and dizziness.

Another possibility can be the changes in blood pressure. Both low or high blood pressure can cause such symptoms.

-Keep yourself hydrated.

-You can take Ready-mixed rehydration sachets (eg Dioralyte, Rehidrat).

-You can also take tab meclizine hydrochloride. This will help you greatly in stopping dizziness.

If this persists then please try to get this further examined, evaluated, and investigated by your clinic doctors, but this does not appear anything serious in nature.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Thank you

Yes, serious symptoms can be chest pain, severe headache, numbness, or breathing discomfort.
