That only works if you have BPPV and not all post concussion dizziness is caused by inner ear issues. I was really hopeful that this manoeuvre would solve my dizziness but it didn't. Its definitely worth looking into and having someone test you for but I didn't want you getting your hopes up.
Do you get dizzy when you roll over in bed? The Epley manoeuvre will fix that type of dizziness. Mine only happens with movement and the vestibular therapy is helping to retrain my brain that there's no reason to be dizzy and overreact.
Just some thoughts. Hope you are having a good day.
I'm a 39 year old, female, accountant. On July 2, 2012 I crashed my bike at the end of a 65KM road ride. I was fine that day but woke up the next morning to my current world.
Ongoing symptoms include: dizziness, blurred vision, light and noise sensitivities, cognitive problems, uncontrollable emotions/depression/anxiety, headaches (but they're getting better), mental and physical fatigue, difficulty communicating and sleep disturbances.
Currently seeing a fabulous Neuro Psychologist and vestibular physiotherapist and hoping to soon see a neuro ophthalmologist. I am currently doing 20 minute stationary bike rides daily, 20 minutes of meditating, 15 minutes of Lumosity and lots of resting. I have not been able to work or drive since the accident.
The things that have helped me the most since the accident are vestibular therapy, gel eye drops (for blurred vision, sensitivity and dryness), amitriptyline (10mg), and meditating. I am finally starting to see some slight improvements and am hopeful!
My brain WANTS to heal itself... I just have to let it and stop trying to get better!
