Thanks for bringing this to our attention on here. Interesting.
Well I wonder about Jacqui. She sounds like a MAVer to me. What happened to all the ‘theories’ about BPPV only lasting a few seconds. I’ve read all over that if your ‘BPPV’ lasts more than a few minutes ie is totally episodic it isn’t BPPV, it’s something else. I was misdiagnosed for 12 years with BPPV and had nearly as many Epley’s as hot dinners. Then I was told by an ENT that I shouldn’t be that ill ie in bed 72 hours at a time, with what I had wrong with me, ie a BPPV diagnosis!
Personally a whole team of wild horses wouldn’t get me in the same room as that machine. i doubt I’d walk again unaided for months.
Quite surprised really I thought the crystal theory was old hat these days. Must admit I find it totally unbelievable. If bits were moving/falling about in peoples ears like that every time anybody tipped at certain angles why aren’t there ambulances awaiting next to every roller coaster in the fairground? And how do they persuade these errant crystals to stay in their ‘proper’ place once they get tipped back there. Helen
