The epley movement has to be shown you by a GP and then any body can do it on you,it means lying on the bed upside down with your head over the end of the bed and thy hold your head and turn it to the right then the left while you stare at the floor that's it basically but you would ave to get the leaflet from GP or yo may be able to download it .Good Luck

Yes it does take confidence. Has mine. Vertigo is awful. I cant look to the right and up at the same time as my head wil go. Vetigo can also make you feel very ill. You can take med for it but not if you on a ad.

I get the same everyday, sometimes its not so bad but others its terrible and I have to stay home.. Feels like the floor moves and I can't balance, I just stand against a wall or try to sit down till it eases.x

I get the dizzy head, the warm feeling as well. Sometimes it feels like my brain is on fire. The dizziness is the worst part, normally it happens when I am walking and I feel the floor moving.

All of this happens when I am really anxious but it does seem to go away when I am at home. Today I tried something new, because normally I just keep telling myself that I am not sick and I am not going to die. This normally brings me back to 'normal'. What I did do today was I have a bead necklace that I now carry with me in my pocket and when things get funny I just start counting the beads. It really helps.

ReggieA, the floor moves doesn't it!! Thank god its not just me.. I put a finger in one ear or index finger in that space on my brow, just above the nose there's a bone level with your eyebrows, just above that bone is a space, put slight pressure there it helps me.x
