Q. My grandmother told me she has BPPV and that it makes her head spin. What exactly is this BPPV?
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) usually strikes when you change the position of your head.
Vertigo is the feeling that either you or your surroundings are spinning. It is more than being just lightheaded or dizzy, because you are subjected to the illusion of movement. If you feel your body is moving, you have subjective vertigo. When you sense that your surroundings are moving, you have objective vertigo.

Q. My three-year-old grandson has become very aggressive. He hits and slaps his parents and angrily yells at them. I have told his parents that this is not appropriate behavior, and that they need to stop it. He does not try to hit me. He is an only child who has not been in child-care other than family.
