Pupper- that’s amazing. I don’t have hot flashes from hormones more like a crappy attitude. I bet a cold pool would cure that too though! Anne- last time I did VT I got physically sick. I function okay day to day but pushing myself in VT is so hard. I do still cheat and use Ativan or meclizine when I have a ton to do and know I’ll feel it. California- the pressure and tinnitus for me is usually a sign of vertigo coming. So that’s the biggest stressor of it for me. Waiting for the horror to start.... thankfully it hasn’t. I do still have the tube in my ear and that helps a lot. I can push on my ear and squish the pressure down. I do it a lot throughout the day but for me it helps. I will probably ask to keep the tube in there because I do find it helps. It was a simple two minute deal to have it out in. Some people call it a grommet. Maybe your doc would let you try it? Thanks for all the positive vibes. I feel like my hearing is improving. Which of course my anxiety rising becasue I fear it means the little hairs are growing back and I’ll get vertigo again. I swear short of a laby there is no escaping all the effects of this horrible syndrome.
