A question that I frequently hear from my patients is “Why do I feel dizzy when I lie down or roll over in bed?”
The answer is that, very commonly, people who are suffering with what’s called BPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – which is the most common vestibular disorder or the most common “inner ear condition that causes dizziness” – often complain of dizziness when they lie down or roll over in bed.
This can affect them at any time when they are lying down or rolling over in bed, but often people with BPPV complain that it is worse in the morning.
So if you are someone who is suffering with dizziness or vertigo when you lie down or roll over in bed, I highly recommend for you to be evaluated by a Vestibular Specialist, which you can find at the website Vestibular.org. That’s the Vestibular Disorders Association where you can find a provider by geography, who specializes in this type of dizziness and its resolution.
