GINGER CAPSULES are what works best for me.

MAGNESIUM, too.

The liver load can affect vertigo, too, so liver support is a must.

If you have a LLMD, be sure they know as vertigo is a frequent symptom of various tick-borne infections.

Sometimes, certain drugs can cause this. Are you taking any Rx right now.

Lie at a 30 degree incline (head higher than feet) but from your torso so as not to strain back or neck.

Right now, if you have Ginger in your kitchen spice collection, you can use some of that to make a ginger tea. [It can be a bit spicy hot if one's mouth is tender inside, though.]

Capsules, keeping up at the full therapeutic dose are best but a tea can be of some help if you don't have capsules on hand.

GRATED FRESH GINGER is better than powdered for tea. Still, the full dose of capsules is easier and has better results as you can't get the full dose in tea, you'd have to be drinking it all the time, and too strong for anyone's mouth.

Do you get dizzy when you roll over in bed. If so, you have benign proximal positional vertigo which is easily fixed by an audiologist or trained physical therapist.

I am well acquainted with this type of vertigo--it was my first lyme symptom after an earache and I get it every so often.

benign proximal positional vertigo can cause dizziness when one rolls over or turns their head but other kinds can, too.

The Epley manuever that hiker53 refers to may help if BPPV but not if it is not. It is not likely to hurt anything, though. There are some steps you can take on your own. More detail in that EAR THREAD above or just

Google: "Epley Maneuver" then find a site where you can find professionals trained in this specific technique - by this name.

Never let any chiropractor, osteopathic doctor or other suddenly twist your neck or spine - ever. Sudden twists of neck or spine should never, ever, be done on someone with lyme or other TBD.

The Epley maneuver does not do sudden twisting but I just wanted to let you know about this in case someone gets that idea. Some may try for their own version of the Epley maneuver but they should be trained in that one, specifically.

And they would likely first assess your inner ear function to be sure it is BPPV and not a different diagnosis.

I do not have BPPV yet I have been unable to turn my head or turn over in bed with severe shifting of vertigo / dizziness. So that's not the only measure. Inflammation and also a high toxic load can cause this kind of vertigo upset.

Only since I had been on Berberine for a while this past year did that vertigo drop / hit / swish from turning my head get better. I'm also better able to turn my head in the kitchen. Berberine is the only thing that is new to me that could account for the marked improvement.

But I do not recall how far into taking this I noticed it. It was just a nice "gift" and it has stayed with me as long as I stay on Berberine. I do go off it frequently when I run out and need to wait for the next month to get more. So, I can tell that it really helps.

Ginger was not enough for me but still can be a helper. Of course, if you have a LLMD, targeting the TBD (tick-borne disease, parasites, etc.) is vital, of course. MAGNESIUM & Liver Support, too.

It's just that Berberine seems to have had such a great effect for my ears, in absence of being able to have a LL doctor and be on a full protocol.

Acupuncture helped me more than physical therapy. I know it's surprising, but I no longer get vertigo thanks to parasite treatment (parasites love the ears).

I feel for you! These were my first symptoms when I had Lyme. I'll tell you what worked for me was cocculus, a homeopathic remedy. IT won't cure the Lyme but it may help with the vertigo you are experiencing. I wish you all the best!

Also be sure that babesia is ruled out. The dizziness/off balance feeling common with babesia is not usually labeled as vertigo, but nevertheless babesia needs to be included in the differential diagnosis for any tickborne patient with balance issues.

I take Bonine. Most times it works like a charm.

Have been dealing with a little bit of Vertigo myself these last few weeks. Hate it. If I feel it coming on, and take the Bonine right away, that usually nips it in the bud for me.

(BTW - NOT Dramamine, only Bonine). I'm sensitive to meds and Dramanine knocks me out. With Bonine, I don't feel like I've taken anything.
