|The version prescribed by my mother's doctor has her alternating the order of direction weekly.|
Mom had spells of dizziness. The doctor diagnosed an inner ear issue and prescribed physical therapy.
I think everybody has occasional bouts of dizziness. It might be worth investigating the Epley Maneuver if you have a long wait before you can see a doctor. I am NOT suggesting that you do this instead of visiting the doctor, there are too many other potential causes that can get a lot worse if they are not attended to.
Rather, I suggest that this therapy might give you some relief while you wait.
