Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

BPPV refers to a condition when you get dizziness on a certain position such as rolling in the bed or waking up from sleep.

While studying for this condition, I found out a nice claymation video showing Hallpike manouevre and Eppley's Manoeuvre.

Below is a nice diagram showing what is happening in the ear canal.
