Can Ear Crystals Cause Vertigo?

Q:
Can ear crystals cause vertigo?

A:
Yes.

There is a kind of vertigo caused by ear crystals. It is called benign positional vertigo.

When small crystals of calcium carbonate break free and enter the semicircular canals, benign positional vertigo happens.

BPV can also happen when those crystals form in the semicircular canal. This can make your brain receive wrong messages about the position of your body.
