  • I battled vertigo for a year and went through numerous, expensive tests. Finally, my doctor suggested physical therapy. I balked at the idea, but desperation made me try it. It worked after just 1 session!! I am located in Sugar Land, TX, and if you are too, I could give you the physical therapists name. She warned me that it could come back, and it has, so I do the exercise she taught me at home and it works after 1 exercise session. She called what I have benign positional vertigo. Here is a website that shows a similar exercise http://www.dizziness-and-balance.com/disorders/bppv/bppv.html
