New to Meniere's, new to this forum. You'll have to excuse the sarcasm...just part of me grappling this new development. Thought I'd share my story and see if anyone can relate or offer helpful advice for dealing with this condition. I'm 36 years old. Two years ago I was diagnosed with endolymphatic hydrops after experiencing month of aural fullness in one ear and eventually, some tinnitus in both ears, but strangely more in the opposite ear. I adapted and had been managing that pretty well until one day a month ago things decided to shift again. I came down with some sort of 24-hour virus that put me in bed with the chills and a 102.5-degree fever, which was soon followed with my first experience with vertigo. The next day I felt better, but dizziness lingered. Then it lingered for a few more days and into the next week. At that point I had a bad feeling it was Meniere's and a visit to the ENT, followed by some testing, confirmed this. All I was given to deal with this newfound dizziness was a prescription for Meclizine and direction to continue taking my diuretic. The Meclizine did nothing for me. So, weeks later I was still experiencing lingering dizziness at times, but thankfully, no more vertigo episodes. Things haven't gotten as bad as many of the experiences I've read about so far. But I have fear and anxiety of it happening. With that, I'm trying to get in front of this condition with ways of treating and managing it before it gets the best of me. I've been pretty vigilant about sodium intake. I've avoided caffeine and alcohol — an immensely, immensely hard thing for a craft beer nerd to do. And I'm starting acupuncture on Monday. I'm curious about your experiences. What have you found to be effective for you? Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine helped? Homeopathy? Hypnotherapy? I've read about these avenues but nothing is as convincing as hearing about them from people experiencing the condition. I'm glad this site exists.
