I was diagnosed with BPPV in 2001 and satisfactorily treated a few times for that with the Epley. Looking back, I realize now that I had residual symptoms of dizziness that took weeks to lessen, which I assumed were related to the BPPV but were perhaps the beginning of Meniere's. Fast forward to this summer when I had a full blown vertigo attack (vomitting, severe spinning, unable to walk or speak) and was taken to ER. I assumed again it was BPPV but it did not respond to physical therapy. (They did MRI and ruled out stroke and any other neurological issues) Another attack over Labor Day weekend and yet another two weeks ago. Screaming tinnitus, unable to lie down due to waves of vertigo, upset stomach, diarrhea, completely off balance to walk, etc. etc. Needless to say, it threw me into the pits of discouragement. It took weeks to get an appointment with ENT. SO, in the meantime, when I could sit at the computer screen, I researched. I found the John of Ohio regimen and read several more articles on the relationship of Meniere's and viruses and autoimmune. I have the herpes simplex virus and I have autoimmune reactions to severe stress. For me, it made sense to begin this regimen with the thought that, 1. It pertained to me and 2. What did I have to lose? Two weeks ago I immediately lowered my salt intake to 700-800mg/day and upped my water intake a lot by sipping water throughout the day. I also began B-5 and B-6 (along with the B-12, Vit. D, and Magnesium I already took daily for years) Last week I introduced 2000mg of L=Lysine/day divided into morning and afternoon. I plan to introduce the other vitamins recommended in the regimen at one each week. I also began treatment with an upper cervical chiropractor simply because all the stress was giving me neck pain and I have some old, ongoing issues there. The last four days have been the best I have felt in six weeks. I still have some vertigo and tinnitus (at a lower volume). I am able to maneuver my environment quicker and take walks. I still feel "off" but much better than where I was a week ago. I wanted to begin this documentation as a way to follow where this may lead. Also, I find the majority of what I read about Meniere's completely discouraging and depressing. So many folks are suffering in a horrible way. I know the causes of Meniere's are many and it's a difficult disease to manage but, if there are some regimens like this that work for some sufferers, then it's very important to share about it. Thank you John of Ohio- for sharing and giving some of us hope.
