could there be a link between benign peroxysmal postional vertigo and bursitis as they relate to calcium deposits?

I am almost positive I have bursitis in my shoulder, although I haven't been to the doctor yet. I also am experiencing vertigo-the kind that comes and goes for no apparent reason. Both can be caused by calcium deposits, so I'm wondering if the 2 conditions are related at all.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small fluid-filled pads that act as cushions among your bones and the tendons and muscles near your joints. You need to see your doctor, so with the proper testings, he will be able to know what can be causing your symptoms.
