Helen BS: Who you calling elderly? (179* d) RE: BS: Who you calling elderly? 03 Jun 21


Jerry, my Hubby bought a low-slung sporty car a few years ago and I have trouble getting in and out of it because it is so low to the ground. I go "Oof" and "Aah" each time and the seat has a dip in it which makes it even more difficult. So, it's not just the high vehicles which are a problem.

I suddenly developed vertigo a couple of years ago and after an internet search I discovered the Epley Manoeuvre aka Epley Maneuver which works if the problem is crystals moving around in the inner ear.

"The Epley maneuver is an exercise you can do at home to relieve dizziness caused by benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).

"BPPV is caused by a problem with the inner ear. Calcium crystals called canaliths can end up in the semicircular canals. If these crystals become dislodged and move around, they can cause the sensation that the world is spinning or moving, also known as vertigo. The Epley maneuver, however, can dislodge these crystals and remove them from the semicircular canals."

The instructions on this page are the same as the ones I use. Epley Maneuver Remember to do it for the correct side. My problem was my right ear.

It only works if the crystals are the cause but it's a simple technique and worth trying. After the initial bout I have only had a couple of further issues and the Epley technique fixed it quick-smart.
