    I have no insurance and ended up going to the local clinic and I was diagnosed with meniers . I have been skeptical bc it has been two weeks and I have not had a relief for more than 5 hours at a time. My anxiety has been horrid my head starts feeling cloudy and can’t keep a straight thought. I get horrible headaches. My ears ring so loud and it just depresses me. It’s hard for me to work lately and it has effected my sleep strangely

    I have been hardly able to function and it scares me not knowing if this is the actual real diagnosis. I have read on a lot of triggers and it sounds like I need to change everything. I smoke I eat bad foods I drink coffee and drink alcohol 3 times a week.

    Samuel. Do you have any hearing loss? Do your ears feel plugged up? How long have you had symptoms?

    I honestly have not noticed hearing loss . Sometimes it’s hard to hear but I think it is just the ringing . The only relief I get is if I take a nap and I have been extremely tired all the time but when I wake up I feel refreshed . Then a few hours later it’s back. It is exhausting and my ears always feel like they have pressure in then. My anxiety and brain fog has been extremely bad as well

    Since you say you have no insurance, I would suggest you might try the JOH regimen. The Lysine and lemon flavinoids have been helpful for me. B5 and B6 regimen by Benny Hill would be cost effective to try. Also with your headaches,you could buy the book "Heal Your Headache" on Amazon. You may have a migraine variant called MAV. You may want to read up on each of these topics on the forum. Did the doctor you saw prescribe diuretics?

    No they just prescribed a steroid. I am going back to the dr Friday. I will look into this . I have been just trying to stay away from salts and the last couple days have been a little better but still not doing good. It’s hard to know if low salt is really helping but willing to try anything at this point.
