I was recently thinking about posting my success story with valtrex until everything came back!! I don’t know what to think now and am totally crushed. I am scheduled to do a gradual return to work on dec 16th, but this was based on 11 weeks of great improvement that is no longer. I initially was having episodes of roaring left sided tinnitus, fullness, pressure, foggy head, head vibrating, decreased hearing in low range. Some lightheadedness. These episodes were present more often than not. Almost always. Serc didn’t work. No identifiable triggers. I started 3000 valtrex in May after discovering this forum. Things got worse for a month or so, then eased. I decreased to 2000 in July. Things weren’t perfect but it was less frequent and less intense. Very exciting. I decreased to 1000 at the end of August. One week later my symptoms came back like crazy. I immediately went back up to 2000, and within ten days I was ok. I had almost 11 weeks from that point on of almost no symptoms!! life! Some rumbling and ringing and off feeling but that’s it. I was certain the valtrex was responsible. then last Friday I woke in the morning to everything back strong for 2 days. I’m still having symptoms, a bit less, but today even seemed to increase compared to last 2 days. This is day 6 Has anyone’s experience been like this? Was it just a coincidence? My fear is that I’m back to my usual hell of almost always having symptoms and I can’t work. I’m still taking 2000 valtrex. Thanks so much for your time.
