Hello @larryg333. I'd like to add my welcome to you. I'm glad that you posted about a possible BPPV diagnosis. I would encourage you, however, to seek the help of an ENT doctor and have the appropriate tests to rule out anything, more serious, that might be causing these symptoms. It is always better to make sure that there are no other problems that might be taken care of with additional exams, such as an MRI of the brain as well as some vestibular tests.
My symptoms are similar to yours. I do have problems with balance and dizziness when I spend time looking up and down. For example, I was helping a friend hang some pictures in a new home and I spent about an hour gazing up and down as we were working. The next morning I woke up with nausea and a spinning sensation. You do not mention any nausea with these symptoms. Have you had nausea as well?
If you seek the advice of an ENT doctor and all other problems are ruled out, I suggest that you ask about the possibility of vestibular therapy. You will be taught the Epley maneuver that Sue, @sueinmn, mentioned above. There are other exercises that can also be quite helpful. Here are some examples:
