What is positional vertigo?

Positional vertigo is when a change in the position of your head causes the sensation of vertigo. This most common form is a condition called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. If someone with this condition lies down with their affected ear toward the floor, they get a brief but strong feeling of the world spinning around.
