    I’ve had vertigo a few times in my life. Luckily, it hasn’t happened to me while sitting in my wheelchair. It happens to me whenever I lay down and either turn to my head to my left or to my right. You can go to the doctor and they can help you with vertigo, but those of us that are in wheelchairs, don’t necessarily have this luxury because they have to put you on the table and manipulate your neck and your head to relieve the symptoms of vertigo itself. My bouts of vertigo usually only last a few days. The doctor that I spoke with said it was caused by crystals in your ear that attach themselves to the hair on the inner part of your ear next to your eardrum. After a while, these crystals do dissolve and the vertigo usually goes away in a short amount of time.
