Are home remedies effective for treating vertigo?

While several suggestions for treatment of vertigo can be found, most of these are ineffective. Many cases of vertigo resolve spontaneously within a few days, which may promote the belief that a certain home remedy has been beneficial in resolving the symptoms.

The vestibular rehabilitation exercises (Cawthorne head exercises) or modified Epley maneuvers are meant to be done on a regular basis by patients, and may lead to marked improvements in vertigo.

I have had vertigo several times over the years. I have had it now for 2 1/2 weeks. A neurologist did the Epley maneuver several times in 2 visits and I still have it. I think it is caused by stress. The first time I had it was the morning my husband was having open heart surgery.

Recently, while crossing a long high bridge on my bicycle I developed vertigo. I made it across the bridge but on my return trip I had to walk my bicycle. I have not experienced symptoms of vertigo at any other time.

This is my second occurrence of vertigo. This time on the 3rd day of it, I went to the doctor who performed the Epley maneuver on me. When I got home I felt like the vertigo was getting bad again; before I went to the doctor"s I was feeling a little bit better. I think perhaps it may have made matters worse for me.
