Why do I get vertigo when I lay down?

A common cause of dizziness when lying down is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, a condition where tiny crystals that help sense gravity in one part of the ear mistakenly move into parts of the inner ear that detect head motion.

How should I lay down to avoid vertigo?

Many experts recommend that you try and sleep on your back, as the crystals within your ear canals are less likely to become disturbed and trigger a vertigo attack. If you happen to get up in the middle of the night, rise slowly as opposed to making any sudden movements with the head or the neck.
