The nurse at my otoneurologist's office just emailed me and said the doctor agreed to let me try antivirals because it helps some. He doesn't seem confident it will help me but at least he agreed to let me try! She said they are calling in a one month prescription for Valtrex to see if it helps or not. I know one month is not long enough to tell if its helping or not so I guess I will just have to tell them that it is helping so they will renew it... I tried Acyclovir for a month back in 2013. But then I got pregnant with my son and had to stop before I had a chance to know if it was going to help me or not. I never convinced my doctor at the time to let me try it again after my son was born. An interesting note about my history is that I had left sided Bell's Palsy 2 times before the Meniere's symptoms started. Bell's Palsy is thought to be cause by the Herpes virus. My left ear is my bad ear... seems connected, does it not?
