I wanted to comment on the lady over 60 that complained about Vertigo. My experience was very similar to the lady who stated she learned a maneuver to help with her vertigo. My ENT put me through a series of balance tests. I failed all the tests and was diagnosed with Mineers disease. This is very much like vertigo but your inner ear canals and sinuses do not completely get rid of mucus or fluid that builds up. Finally after many years I was able to get on a diuretic,that works at deceasing the amount of fluid that builds up in my ear canals. There are little ear filters, much like hair like that are suppose to be able to reset with an adjustment. Mine situation was much different. Hopefully those people who read this will get advice from an ENT and allow them to further test you. There is also a shot that my ENT gives me yearly to cut down the accumulation of fluid in the ears. I forgot to add that with the accumulation of fluid in my ear canals I did not recover from a cold. Instead one night I fell under my bed and received a concussion. I was Hospitalized for one week due to the severe infection in both ears.

I used to suffer from vertigo like you, until my doctor told me to watch a Youtube video about a vertigo treatment called the epley maneuver. My husband helped me with the moves. We had to do it twice. That was two years ago! Good luck.
