PPPD also known as  3PD

Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness

What is PPPD?

Some people may have constant and vague dizziness that increases with movement or in busy places. It may be triggered by a sudden inner ear event during which the brain relies on vision more than usual. This problem is called visual vertigo or space motion discomfort. If the person has had these symptoms for more than 3 months, it is called 3PD. A common complaint is feeling uncomfortable while walking in stores or crowds. The lightheaded feeling is better with sitting or lying down in a quiet area (Lisa Heusel-Gillig, PT, DPT, NCS from the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy). Link Here for Reference Article
