When crystals tend to form in the middle ear, this may be due to a disorder called vertigo. This a disorder caused by small crystals that have colonized a sensitive part of the inner ear. Treatment can only be offered by a doctor or through the application of the Brandt-Daroff exercises. You can sit on any flat surface and turn your head at a 45-degree angle before lieing down on your right side and maintaining that position for 30 seconds. Afterwards, sit upright for another 30 seconds, turn your head right at 45-degree and repeat the process until the vertigo subsides.
