I've had some success with the Epley maneuver (for BPPV). It's really rough to go through the process (I sometimes end up puking) but it does seem to reduce the duration of the attack for me (it can last a couple of days). There are variations on the basic idea.
Getting an actual diagnosis is the place to start though.
ecause a cause hasn’t been identified, the disease is defined by its four major symptoms. The first is a sudden, spontaneous attack of prolonged vertigo — violent rotary spinning and dizziness — occurring from 20 minutes to eight hours at a time. The second is a fluctuating hearing loss of lower frequencies just before, during or right after the vertigo attack. The third is roaring tinnitus — ear ringing, or the perception of sound in the absence of sound — that rises with the attack and then abates. The fourth symptom is a sensation of the affected ear’s canal filling up.

I have suffered extreme dizziness, tinnitus and some nausea to the point of passing out for about 3 years. Very dibillitating.
I cannot be up right for long. I always sit in a reclined position. It has just about destroyed my life.
Been hospitalized for it and seen many doctors.
I have read everything on the internet. If anyone has any ideas, I would be so grateful.
