Can BPPV cause weight gain

Add a Comment1 Comments


Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for asking us if BPPV can cause weight gain.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo, which is the sudden sensation that you're spinning or that the inside of your head is spinning.

BPPV does not cause weight gain.

Often, there's no known cause for BPPV. This is called idiopathic BPPV.

When a cause can be determined, BPPV is often associated with a minor to severe blow to your head. Less common causes of BPPV include disorders that damage your inner ear or, rarely, damage that occurs during ear surgery or during prolonged positioning on your back, such as in a dentist chair. BPPV also has been associated with migraines.
