Bella, I have been going through this for about 4 months now. It mostly
happens when I lay on my right side or look up which has led me to believe it is BPPV (in which case, the Valsalva Maneuver which Craig posted has a high success rate). I also went for a MRI at my Doctors recommendation. The MRI was about 2 months ago and my doctor couldn't seem to fit me in for the follow up until this Wednesday
I haven't pursued it heavily mainly because my child has been very sick so I have been looking after him. Hopefully nothing serious comes back with the MRI and I will go from there with an appointment at outpatient physical therapy for the maneuver or off to a ear/ nose/ throat doctor.
I can truly empathize, it is a awful feeling. I actually tried to do the maneuver on myself and I spun so violently that I quit!
On edit, they did give me the medicines too, I just haven't been taking them until I see that there is nothing that can be fixed :(
