I know all about vertigo and it’s treatment using the Epley maneuver from personal experience. That’s because a few years back I suffered from a severe case of vertigo myself for about 30 days before I discovered this treatment.
This is my story. My wife had gone to the supermarket and brought home some sushi and wine for dinner (Mistake #1). All seemed fine until about the middle of the night when I got sick and felt like I had to vomit. As I got out of bed, I almost fell over due to the extreme dizziness that I experienced.
I thought it was just food poisoning but one of my eyes was twitching very hard as well which I had never experienced before. That’s called nystagmus when the eye does that and is part of the vertigo from an inner ear problem.
In the morning when I woke up I still had severe dizziness but it was more like the room was spinning. At that point I knew it was vertigo and not dizziness. And it would happen whenever I would lay down or change positions. I felt totally helpless and didn’t know what to do. I kept hoping it would go away on it’s own but it didn’t. I had this condition for 30 days until I discovered the Epley maneuver. So I can totally sympathize with your current situation.
The good news is that typically it only takes 1 treatment to get rid of the vertigo at my office using the Epley maneuver. I feel like God let me experience this problem so that I could help others who suffer with vertigo.
Here are some people I helped.
