Yesterday and night--worst of my life and I'm 67 years old, so I have a lot to be thankful for that I've lived this long without the 11 hours of sheer misery with vertigo and finally a few hours of sleep. I tried the hanging head and some form of the Epley exercise and an eye movement exercise, all of which I found earlier on-line. With any slight change of position, my head was in the toilet or a barf bucket. After 10 hours, I finally kept a meclizine pill down and I put the anti-nausea pill under my tongue instead of swallowing it and got to sleep. We had company when all this started and my husband's buddy went on a mission to help and his friend, a nurse, told him I should take Sudafed in addition to the other pills. This doesn't sound right to me and we didn't have any. Now I can't find any substantiation on-line for using it in this way. I recently used a box of Sudafed my ENT doc recommended after I was having a sudden flare up of symptoms, which did not include the vertigo, and it didn't help. The doc then put me on an antibiotic and that didn't help. He then changed the diuretic to the generic Dyazide, which I've been on for a few months. The only noticeable change on the plus side is a marked decrease in the tinnitus. The bad fullness and hyper-sensitivity to higher sounds and music were the worst of it until some more frequent episodes of vertigo and then the worst of all episodes last night. So, has anyone had any experience with adding a Sudafed pill when vertigo symptoms start? And what do you take for the lousy, head-achey feeling the next day. I read somewhere that Ibuprofen is not a good choice. And one more question...does anyone have experience going to an ER during a vertigo attack? The last one I had in May was as severe, but lasted only a few hours. I called the ENT doc's office the next day, hoping to get an Rx for something stronger the next time, and a nurse told me I should have gone to the ER. I can't imagine getting in a car for the 40 minute drive to the nearest hospital. If you go by ambulance, will the EMT's give you some sort of sedative? Just thinking about being jostled about like that makes me relive the attack in my mind. I also had 2 attacks in June, but a meclizine and a few "exercises" and I felt better. I'm afraid I'm starting a new pattern. I was previously diagnosed 2 years ago with Cochlear Hydrops, but I think the doc will change it to MM the next time I see him. I found the JOH regimen, thanks to reading some of your posts, and I ordered the full batch of pills, so I'll start that this week. I'm surprised the ENT doc's office has never offered any information on this or on the exercises for vertigo. Thanks for reading this long rant and for your comments.
