Hi everyone! My name is Megan. I'm 32 years old and I believe I have cochlear hydrops. I'm seriously struggling with this. I also have a lot of hope I will figure this out! My neurotologist just referred to it as 'hydrops.' I do not get vertigo attacks. I just have constant tinnitus, fluctuating fullness in both ears (mostly right.) I have some hearing loss in my right ear, but I know that if my ear is able to drain properly, my hearing will be back to normal. I feel like I'm unsteady all the time (like I'm rocking or being slightly shoved.) I'm so fortunate I don't get vertigo attacks and I truly sympathize with those of you who do. I'm so sorry you have to go through that. I've seen countless doctors, upper cervical chiropractor, regular chiropractor, naturopathic dr., tried the JOH for several months, tried flonase, diuretics. The only thing that gave me relief was Betahistine. Unfortunately I had an allergic reaction with labored breathing with chest pain. I'm so beyond frustrated and depressed. I religiously eat healthy, exercise 5-7 times per week. I just saw a tmj specialist thinking that may be it because I have bad tension in my jaw, I think I grind and don't know it. I had oral surgery back in 2004 to correct an underbite. I had a car accident back in 2013. Could that be it? I have eczema on my outer ears and have had fungal and viral infections in my outer ears numerous times. My premonition tells me it moved to my inner ear. I just got 400 mg of acyclovir filled today. Pretty hesitant to take it because of my troubles with medication. Can anyone help me out? Let me know what has worked for you. Think I should take the anti virals?? I would love any advice or input.
