QUESTION

Posted by Anonymous-1190aa68 in Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat, Aug 23, 2011

I have dizziness that last for days with vomiting, hearing loss in one ear and ringing in that ear. My doctor has diagnoised me with menears and run a MRI. The MRI show everything is normal with my ear. I don't see how everything can be normal when half of my hearing is gone in that ear, it has constant ringing and I can not even move my head some days without vomiting. Has anyone had these systems and the doctor not be able to find out what is wrong?

I've had two MRI's in the last eight months, along with many other tests trying to figure out the cause of my dizziness/balance problem, but like you, they come back as normal. You would think an MRI would show something wrong with the inner ear when it comes to this issue since the inner ear controls these functions. So far taking Ativan takes the edge off the dizziness for a while since it suppresses the vestibular system.
I'm trying to get into Mayo Clinic to have this figured out, but so far they have been reviewing the tests I've already had this last year, and haven't called back with an appointment date. Good luck to you, being dizzy is terrible.

Thanks for responding. I have had the dizziness constantly unless I take Dramamine 2. I can not move my head 2 inch without vomiting horribly unless I do take the Dramamine. I have an appointment with two different specialist, but it takes a while to get in. I have gone to a naturalpathic doctor that has a college degree in natural medicine. He got me in right away. He does muscle testing and it is very acuate. (He cleared my mom of cancer.) He tested and said that the fluid in my ear is not draining properly and the my estationary tube had calcium deposits that was part of the drainage problem and that the fluid in my ear is not a healthy fluid. He gave me a couple of things, but told me not to stop taking the Dramamine for a least a week to give the problem time to correct. I think I will wait a little longer than that, because as you said, being dizzy is terrible. I have to lay still, no TV and reading. I just lay there or I'm vomiting horribly. I wish you the best. I will let you know how it turns out on this end and hope you will do the same.

Please check out these two websites - there are many others as well. I have done enough research to believe my mercury fillings is the cause of my Meneres. You have to go to Holistic Dentist to have the fillings removed safely to keep from being exposed to addition mercury, and it is expensive. You also need to go to a good natural doctor (I found one that has a college degree in natural health), to have the mercury detoxed from your body. It will not be a cheap road, but in my case will be around $2,000 to have all of my fillings removed safely and then to be detoxed. To me it will be worth every penny to get rid of the Meneres. I will let you all know the results, when I have completed the process. I get the right side done on Dec. 7th and the left side on Dec. 14th, but I probably need a little time to detox as well.

I found most dentist will remove your mercury fillings, but do not use the correct safety messures to keep you from being exposed to even more mercury. The natural doctor I use is still working with a patient to try to remove all of the mercury after a regular dentist removed his fillings. He is very sick from it. Some people are more sensitive to mercury than others.

I would check into this is you have mercury feelings yourself. Let me know what your results are as well.

I would like to share my story about amalgam fillings with you.

I started losing my hearing about 6 years ago and starting getting vertigo about 4 or 5 years. Starting in mid July of 2011, I was unable to move my head 2 inches without throwing up constantly and could not function without Dramamine 2, both day and night. Before I learned how to control the vertigo with Dramamine 2, I could not do anything. I just laid in bed and could not move. Even to get up to go to the restroom meant throwing up at least 10 times one way both to and from the restroom. I was diagnosed with Meniere’s. Someone told me about Meniere’s being associated with amalgam fillings, which have mercury in them. I started to research this and found out that a lot of my health issues were symptoms of mercury poisoning. (I will list these symptoms below.) I went to a Doctor of Natural Health, one with a degree in the field, and found out my mercury levels were extremely high.

I made an appointment with a holistic dentist, to avoid any additional mercury exposure. I had my right side amalgam fillings removed first, since it was effecting my right ear. I was so afraid to stop taking the Dramamine 2 for fear of not being able to function again. So I stopped all Dramamine 2 in the day time and did a couple of nights of a half a dose and one night of a fourth of a dose. In less than one week, I had totally stopped taking the Dramamine 2 and have not had vertigo since!! I have never been so grateful. (I am in the process of detoxing for the mercury, which you most do to remove the mercury that is in your system.)

I had my amalgam fillings approximately 25 years before my meniere’s hit me. Here are the other health issues I had, but did not relate them to my fillings until after I started researching mercury:

Irritability
Restlessness
Angered easily
Indecision
Inability to concentrate
Insomnia
Numbness in limbs for no reason
Muscle weakness
My hands had just started to tremor on occasion
Coordination got worse
Bleeding gums
Loosening of teeth
Excessive salivation (especially noticeable at night)
Foul breath
Sometimes a metallic taste in mouth, but not always
Vertigo - terrible case of
Ringing in ears, along with other noises
Lost most hearing of hearing in right ear
Candida
Chronic constipation, then sometimes diarrhea
Abnormal heart rhythm and EKG
Repeated chronic sinus infections
Tumor in jaw close to one of my large fillings - believe to be cancerous (now rid of)
Joint pain, that I thought was fibromyalgia
Chronic sinus infections and terrible allergies (although I grew up on a farm and did not have allergy problems)
Severe dermatitis on right hand developed shortly after receiving my fillings. (I am curious to see if this goes away after I detox.)
Subnormal body temperature
Excessive perspiration
Unexplained pain
Chronic fatigue

There are many other symptoms. If you have any silver fillings in your mouth, look up mercury poisoning on the internet. It first effects the brain and nervous system, which may be the cause of the tingling. I am not saying that is the problem, but it is at least worth checking into. If you have the amalgam fillings and you have them removed, please go to a holistic dentist to avoid further exposure to the mercury and you will need to detox for mercury. Mercury does not show up in your blood test after several minutes of the exposure. Your body stores it in you cells to get it out of your blood. So I would not rely on a doctor testing your blood to see if it is high. A urine test is more accurate, but you have to take something to pull it out of your cells so it will show up in your urine. I know your symptoms can be caused by other things as well. But I have gained my life back and want to get the word out to help others. Please let me know, what you find out. Thanks and I wish you the best! I know it about ruined my life.

Hi,

I have dizziness issues and tinitis and like Chester, I take ativan to take the edge off. But it's only a temporary relief. It doesn't touch the headache, but relief from the diziness is welcome. It also helps with nausea.

My symptoms are caused by a Pineal Cyst, although much of the literature I've read says that PC's don't cause symptoms. Supposedly theyr are benign and are just "There". I say that the area in our heads is prime real estate and anything extra in there can cause symptoms.

Incidently, I had an MRI back in march for my ears. They caught just a shadow of the cyst by chance. Another more focused MRI in June found a very pronounced cyst.

Hi, I was diagnosed with Menieres Disease 11 years ago and my left ear has been ringing since then. I have not had one second of a day where my ear did not ring. I do have a big hearing loss in that ear also. I know what you mean about the dizziness, I had that for several years (its vertigo). There is nothing you can do about the ringing but the migraines, vomiting, and diarrhea can be managed by trying to avoid salt. There is salt in everything you eat so try (and it is so hard), try to have no more than 1,000 mg salt per day.

I sorry I answered to the wrong reply. I have the ring also, it has been 4 years. But the veritgo use to come and go away, it has now stayed for 2 months. I am on Dramamine 2 everyday to function. As I said earlier, I have gone to a Naturalpathic doctor and I hope it helps. The specialist I am going to see, wants to do another motion test and I have to be off of Dramamine for 2 days before the test. I what the Natualpathic doctor gave me does not work by then, I don't even know how I will get there. I wish you the best!

My MRI was normal but was diagnosed with Menieres disease. I was put on prednisone for 2 weeks, Valium when the spinning starts, a daily diuretic and a low salt diet. Was doing much better until I went on a trip to Europe and now everything is back. Tried so hard to eat low sodium but it is difficult when you are out. We also had a very hectic schedule, time change, etc. That I think retriggered it. Am holding off going back to ENT to see if things will settle down. Hearing is crappy in left ear and it's like an alarm clock is going off in my ear at all times.

I had my amalgam fillings approximately 25 years before my meniere’s hit me. Here are the other health issues I had, but did not relate them to my fillings until after I started researching mercury:

Irritability
Restlessness
Angered easily
Indecision
Inability to concentrate
Insomnia
Numbness in limbs for no reason
Muscle weakness
My hands had just started to tremor on occasion
Coordination got worse
Bleeding gums
Loosening of teeth
Excessive salivation (especially noticeable at night)
Foul breath
Sometimes a metallic taste in mouth, but not always
Vertigo - terrible case of
Ringing in ears, along with other noises
Lost most hearing of hearing in right ear
Candida
Chronic constipation, then sometimes diarrhea
Abnormal heart rhythm and EKG
Repeated chronic sinus infections
Tumor in jaw close to one of my large fillings - believe to be cancerous (now rid of)
Joint pain, that I thought was fibromyalgia
Chronic sinus infections and terrible allergies (although I grew up on a farm and did not have allergy problems)
Severe dermatitis on right hand developed shortly after receiving my fillings. (I am curious to see if this goes away after I detox.)
Subnormal body temperature
Excessive perspiration
Unexplained pain
Chronic fatigue

There are many other symptoms. If you have any silver fillings in your mouth, look up mercury poisoning on the internet. It first effects the brain and nervous system, which may be the cause of the tingling. I am not saying that is the problem, but it is at least worth checking into. If you have the amalgam fillings and you have them removed, please go to a holistic dentist to avoid further exposure to the mercury and you will need to detox for mercury. Mercury does not show up in your blood test after several minutes of the exposure. Your body stores it in you cells to get it out of your blood. So I would not rely on a doctor testing your blood to see if it is high. A urine test is more accurate, but you have to take something to pull it out of your cells so it will show up in your urine. I know your symptoms can be caused by other things as well. But I have gained my life back and want to get the word out to help others. Please let me know, what you find out. Thanks and I wish you the best! I know it about ruined my life.

I wish to contribute my experience regarding this post -- in case it is a help to others. I have scanned the comments and, generally speaking, can say I have experienced all the symptoms (and then some -- tinnitus and vertigo can be so relentless that you can not even sleep -- much less get out of bed and have any kind of existence), tried all the meds, had all the "tests" (including spinal taps) and seen numerous specialists including UCLA Medical School & world famous House Ear Clinic in LA. Mine was/is a life changing experience. I am now 62 and had to drop out of college because I woke up one morning and had to crawl out of bed -- vertigo, tinnitus, vomiting and had 100% hearing loss in my right ear. This went on for months/years. There is a reason why Van Gogh cut off his ear and why "Starry Night" was painted the way it was. Second only to pain, ear problems file most of the top ten disabling symptoms. Briefly and loosely stated, the best label current western "medicine" have given me is that of Menieres. I have gotten fairly good about evaluating ENT types and I am not very impressed. Roughly speaking the 80/20 rule applies to them (and doctors in general). I hope everyone can persevere and find a good doctor who falls in the 20% category -- someone who truly puts the patient first and is good at their trade. After several years and many ENTs, specialists, "tests & procedures", I stumbled upon an ENT type who said try this ... it will help. It was Valium at 5mg three times per day. Within 4 to 6 hours my vertigo completely stopped -- after many years. For me this was like a miracle: I could now drive a care and earn a living. It is important to be sure you are put on an effective dose -- there is no room for wimpy "doctors". As I look back, over the years, I often wonder: could all those "doctors" be so dumb -- why wasn't this offered up early in my medical experience -- even if only as a diagnostic tool.
For those who may be stuck with on-gong balance problems (because of ear damage) the body does some good adaptation but it takes time (if you are fortunate enough to find good help, you might be able to accelerate the process. The eyes, legs (muscle groups) and feet all help compensate for the loss of the ear(s). Since I did not trust my ability to drive safely (vertigo could get worse with little or no warning), I did a lot of walking and trying to ride a bicycle. Bicycle riding was probably a great balance exercise for training the eyes to carry on were the ear stopped. The point is that one can regain 80 to 90% of your balance back. It isn't perfect. For me, if I get caught in a really dark room (without a focal light source), I stop moving and do a controlled crash to the ground -- I have lost any sort of balance control. Now, when that happens, I just think it is funny and crawl my way to achieve some sort of focal reference points.
I know things can be much worse and I am always amazed at how the body works at healing -- or should I say balance --itself. Regrettably, there is more to this tale. I hope that my narrative is a help. Never give up.

Please check out these two websites - there are many others as well. I have done enough research to believe my mercury fillings is the cause of my Meneres. You have to go to Holistic Dentist to have the fillings removed safely to keep from being exposed to addition mercury, and it is expensive. You also need to go to a good natural doctor (I found one that has a college degree in natural health), to have the mercury detoxed from your body. It will not be a cheap road, but in my case will be around $2,000 to have all of my fillings removed safely and then to be detoxed. To me it will be worth every penny to get rid of the Meneres. I will let you all know the results, when I have completed the process. I get the right side done on Dec. 7th and the left side on Dec. 14th, but I probably need a little time to detox as well.

I found most dentist will remove your mercury fillings, but do not use the correct safety messures to keep you from being exposed to even more mercury. The natural doctor I use is still working with a patient to try to remove all of the mercury after a regular dentist removed his fillings. He is very sick from it. Some people are more sensitive to mercury than others.

I would check into this is you have mercury feelings yourself. Let me know what your results are as well.


Thanks!

Hi Robert - Who did you see at House? I have had Meniere's for 15 years, hearing in eft ear shot, no vertigo for 20 years until the past month- about 3 episodes a week. I thought valium was additive - are you able to function on 5 mg 3day? I am 73, still working as a research consultant and need to stp spinning, staggering, and
suffering from foggy brain. Did you go through the allergy testing at House? And - did you have good experience with UCLA ENT? I am in the UCLA system, thought House might be better. Thanks in advance,'
Cindy

Sorry that you are experiencing vertigo. Hopefully, it will not get worse. In my case, it was 24/7 -- for months. Coupled with sever tinnitus, I found it hard to even sleep not to mention having any kind of life. Consequently, in my case, any additive nature of Valium was/is a none issue. I get the feeling that you wonder if taking 5 mg 3 times a day would have knocked me off my feet. That is probably a reasonable concern as the younger doctors at UCLA_ENT looked at me in disbelief that I could even walk -- taking that amount. For me, Valium (at that dose) was a real life saver -- perhaps saying that it was miraculous would not be going too far. I was so "conditioned" to living with vertigo that I took many months of being totally vertigo free (thanks to Valium) before I could stop living in fear that an episode would suddenly occur (when driving a car, etc). Unrelenting vertigo can be a real show stopper. I had/have absolutely zero problems functioning at that dose.
Although I have often heard that going to a teaching hospital can be very advantageous, I found the docs at House to more realistic/practical in their diagnosis and treatment. I saw several at both. My preference would be House. I was always searching for a medical specialist who also had Meniere's but no such luck. It is interesting that you mentioned allergy testing. Of all the tests, procedures, pills, diets, etc -- allergy tests were never run on me. I sincerely hope that you can get the proper help to bring your vertigo under control. Someone who sticks with you and actually "pulls out all the stops" to conquer the vertigo.

I would like to share my story about amalgam fillings with you.

I started losing my hearing about 6 years ago and starting getting vertigo about 4 or 5 years. Starting in mid July of 2011, I was unable to move my head 2 inches without throwing up constantly and could not function without Dramamine 2, both day and night. Before I learned how to control the vertigo with Dramamine 2, I could not do anything. I just laid in bed and could not move. Even to get up to go to the restroom meant throwing up at least 10 times one way both to and from the restroom. I was diagnosed with Meniere’s. Someone told me about Meniere’s being associated with amalgam fillings, which have mercury in them. I started to research this and found out that a lot of my health issues were symptoms of mercury poisoning. (I will list these symptoms below.) I went to a Doctor of Natural Health, one with a degree in the field, and found out my mercury levels were extremely high.

I made an appointment with a holistic dentist, to avoid any additional mercury exposure. I had my right side amalgam fillings removed first, since it was effecting my right ear. I was so afraid to stop taking the Dramamine 2 for fear of not being able to function again. So I stopped all Dramamine 2 in the day time and did a couple of nights of a half a dose and one night of a fourth of a dose. In less than one week, I had totally stopped taking the Dramamine 2 and have not had vertigo since!! I have never been so grateful. (I am in the process of detoxing for the mercury, which you most do to remove the mercury that is in your system.)

My dizzy spells started three years ago after I passed out and hit my right side of head (had stitches) on a door. Had tinnitus for many years before the fall. Then I started have the feeling of vibrations in my feet and legs below my knees. I also had the sensation of when I was walking, my body wanted to go one way and my feet the other way. Very off balance, dizzy, nausea, foggy brain and feel like I am going to pass out. My ENT finally diagnosed me with Meniere's Disease. I cannot go on the diuretics due to my ease of fainting. First I had a tube ring put in my right ear - didn't help and made the tinnitus worse. Then, I was put on Prednisone for 10 days - horrible stuff and didn't help. I tried the Meniette device - didn't work. So my ENT told me to try Accupuncture. I found one who is also a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. He used Accupunture to stop the Tinnitus - IT WORKED - noise is 98% gone - When I lie down at night it is gone completely until I stand up again. He also used Bio-Cranial Treatment on me which helped for balance. I am still not feeling well and hoping to get a second opinion. It is wonderful to not have the Tinnitus but I still have issues. Does anyone feel sick when the hear a vibrating noise - such as a car, truck, motorcycle? This sets off the vibrating in my feet and legs and makes me dizzy. I also have fibromyalgia, Irritable bowel syndrome and going through perimenopause - which my ENT said hormones play a huge role in the dizziness.
