World gone topsy-turvy: How many here struggling with vertigo (BPPV)?

Spending a lot of time in bed lately. My wife/caregiver is having another bout of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It's an inner ear condition that goes away in days or weeks. Since she's been getting this 18 months ago, we've met several others who do too.

We already visited the ENT specialist. He prescribed exercises (Epley maneuver) and waiting it out. It's tough on her but keeping spirits up.

Did any one of you experienced a diagnosed BPPV that last multiple days at every episode?

I was diagnosed with BPPV 6 years ago. In a completely different situation than now. I was among friends and family, I had a good job that I loved, I was feeling belonging.
In the fall 2020, I started to experience tinnitus and I went to a Ear, Nose and Throat doctor and she told me that what I have is not BPPV. I am just stressed and I should just get out from the environment that makes me stressed. She said that BPPV do not last several days. And she also said that I need to learn to live with tinnitus, they will never go away.
Is anyone else experiencing BPPV that last several days beside the Epley maneuver ?
Is the doctor a fake doctor and should I just het someone else for my tinnitus? #Tinnitus #BPPV
