Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo occurs when the calcium crystals (otoliths) of the inner ear detach. The main symptom is that everything rotates when going to sleep. It is much worse than the dizzy feeling you experience when you are drunk. The first episode, which happens without warning, when you don’t know what it is, is desperate.
