Re: Virus Connection? Twinkle, Barr Epstein virus is the most common virus in humans. If it has caused vestibular symptoms then it is well passed anything Lysine can do for it. Some report vitamin B deficiency as a factor in agrivating BE which is a Herpes virus. Acyclovir is the most effective way to put and keep the virus in remission. Now I say this with all respect ... your Barr Epstein is no doubt the cause of your vestibular symptoms in my opinion. This by definition means you don't have "Meniere's." The good news is the Barr Epstein can be arrested with acyclovir and will probably require a lifetime daily dose to keep it inactive. A scientific diagnosis is required to determine what the inner ear problem is and prescribe the proper regimen, I.E. for hydrops the diet to control insulin, etc.
