Hi – Check out some of the other posts – there are a few on menieres.
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 Acupuncture. I found one who is also a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. He used Acupunture 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. This is a horrible way to “live” (don’t feel like I am really living) and hopefully there will be some help out there. Best wishes.
