BPPV is a spinning type of dizziness/vertigo brought on by head movement. It is caused by displacement of the calcium carbonate crystals (otoconia) usually attached to the hair cells in the inner ear. These otoconia are then free floating in one of the fluid filled tubes inside your inner ear, causing you to feel dizzy.
