For cmg:

I accidentally hit the reply button and it got sent out without me finishing my reply, so I do apologize.

The WeatherX earplugs helped to lessen the severity of them; and now, I only get a bit of dizziness from time to time. (I still get one or two small migraines a week, and occasionally have gone a couple weeks or more without one). I'm a bit older than you, I'm 71 years old.

Basically, I ordered the ones that have the flat tabs, and I wear them to bed, almost every night.

Using those daily, in conjunction with the app that is free to download from the Play Store, helps me to keep track of the barometric pressure changes, and that's what works for me. That, and being strict with avoiding my known triggers. Staying well-hydrated with water too.

I have faith you will be able to work with your doctors, track what you are eating, and also the barometric pressure.

I'll be hoping and praying that you'll find some good solutions to help you live your life as you wish!

So grateful for your reply. Yes, I have been keeping a journal of food and drink intake and trying to eliminate one thing at a time. I have had no alcohol since January, no chocolate for a week, no caffeine for 5 days. I don't know how long these things typically take to get completely out of your system. I am on 7 days of the medication. I have not seen a tremendous difference. My neurologist wants me to go two weeks before we judge if it's working for me.
I had a concussion in November of 2022 and all this started in January. I am not sure it is related but I can't rule it out.
I wondered if there was a pill you could take on the onset. There are mornings I wake up clear headed, however by 11 am my ears are ringing, and the dizziness begins. I remain unbalanced for the rest of the day. On a good day with just slight symptoms, nighttime always brings on the symptoms. I find myself in bed by 8pm most of the time. I did PT , learned exercises to force myself to get dizzy, and did not see much of a difference.

Wondering where to get those earplugs.
