Do NSAIDs Help Relieve Vertigo?

Yesterday I was at work and started to get a little dizzy around 10am. Ignored it, hoping it would go away. Not. By Noon I was bouncing off the walls, literally.

Then I remembered that a couple weeks ago I took some ibuprofen for some back pain, and the very minor dizziness that I had that day disappeared. Well, maybe it would help again. So I took an ibuprofen, and the major dizziness I was experiencing got better. It didn’t go away, but it was reduced enough so that I could drive home. When I got home I did the Epley Maneuver, and the dizziness was reduced even more.

So I’d like to know . . . have you ever experienced a reduction in Vertigo by taking ibuprofen or other NSAIDs?
