The physical therapist performed the maneuver. I'm feeling better. However, she also thinks the doctor may have misdiagnosed me. I may have been holding my jaw so tight that it affected my inner ear. She based this on the tightness of my shoulders and mandibular muscles (my name for them, probably not the right one) and the weakness of some of my throat muscles. I have homework to strengthen the latter and loosen the former as well as other exercises in case it is the gravel. One other thing she noticed is that my eyes aren't tracking smoothly, especially down to up. In her words, they jump. She thinks this may be a contributor to my dizziness, too, and gave me eye tracking exercises.

I have a lot of homework.

PS: I made it through the day without medication, though I did have some brief spells. I'll probably take it tonight, though, since waking up is one of my worst times for dizziness.

Best wishes.

It's interesting to me how interconnected things are, and how easy it is for a problem in one thing to present as problems somewhere else.
