I dread trying to sleep. MAV has robbed me of sleeping well. I CANNOT lay flat on my back; I sleep propped up on two pillows, and mostly on my left side. Strangely, my BPPV used to be triggered by laying on my left, but it switched. I have had physical therapy for BPPV, and they determined I have both sides affected. Though, my BPPV is not my problem these days; it's 24/7 MAV. Some nights I sleep sitting up, on my couch, with pillows propping my head up. When I first lay down at night, I feel unsettled-- kinda like I've had too much to drink-- then it calms down, and I don't move too much or it stirs up the "icky" feeling. I rarely sleep through the night, and sometimes I dream that I'm spinning and wake up sweating and nauseated. I hate my life now; it's very difficult to find peace with this. I hike on the weekends, for hours, which helps my mood. And I ride my bike as often as weather permits. Exercise keeps me sane.
