Symptoms of this condition include
1. Sudden onset of severe giddiness on turning head which lasts for few Mins
2. Many such episodes per day
3. Medicines usually do not work
4. Associated nausea during giddiness
5. Repeated head movements will reduce giddiness severity
This is a very benign condition and diagnosis is confirmed by a maneuver known as dix hallipike maneuver
Once confirmed another maneuver known as epleys maneuver is done to treat the problems
