    I have had Meniere's for 6 years now. I have been a bad flare the past year. My intense ear fullness and ringing was constant with vertigo every couple of days, to a week. I have pestered my neurotologist a lot lately. About two and a half weeks ago he said he wanted to try a different route and start treating me for MAV. He wanted me to start taking magnesium 2x a day and B2 2x a day. I was very skeptical, but tried anyway. By the end of the next day my ear fullness was way down and my tinnitus barely noticeable. Here I am two and a half weeks later feeling really good still... and I haven't had any vertigo! Seems like its working... but only time will tell I guess.

    Been wondering if I may have Mav to go along with my Menieres my mom suffered from migraines as my sister does also. I have some Mag laying around and can pick up some B2 pretty easy would like to knock down the ear fullness. Thanks for the post.

    I’m on magnesium and B2, both 200 mg twice a day; and coenzyme Q10; all for migraine prevention. I think what’s really helped is being off alcohol, caffeine and chocolate (check out “Heal your Headache” by dr. Buchholz).

    I still get a neck/tooth/earache with our severe barometric changes, and often that’s when I get vertigo too (though they also live separate lives too).

    I had been in vertigo remission for the past nine months but all good things seem to have to come to an end. During my remission I had not been looking at these posts regularly, so a delay in my reply here...but I also found great relief from taking 200 mg of B2. I only take once a day. I seem to suffer from vestibular migraines and menieres. The only thing I want to note is that I had been taking high doses of B6, the neurologist who recommended the B2 to me told me B6 exacerbates the migraines, so I reduced my b6 vitamins as much as possible. I am also on the JOH regime.

    Do you follow the vestibular migrant diet? Was just diagnosed with this? Wondering how well it works.
