Hey everyone, long time no post.
So, just a quick recap, on December last year, after 2 years of dizziness, vertigo attacks and the works, i was diagnosed with MAV since all the medical tests were clean.
Since then I’ve been taking 50mg Amytriptiline and 400mg B2. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen much improvement and am still getting serious vertigo attacks every 2-3 months with dizziness and overall “blah” feeling in between. Should point out that I’m doing VRT and seeing some improvement in the day to day.
Fast forward to recently, I had to change Neuro unfortunately. The new Dr wanted me to get an ENG with caloric test to make sure there weren’t any inner ear issues.
The ENG showed one sided weakness. This led the new neuro to decide that what I have is not MAV and he sent me to see an ENT (again) that specializes in dizziness.
Saw him today and he seems to believe I have Vestibular Menieres, not regular menieres since I don’t have tinnitus and no apparent hearing loss.
He sent me to get a hearing test to see if there’s some hearing loss. He also (and the new neuro) wants me to get off the Ami as it doesn’t seem to work anyway, which I was thinking to do anyway. He prescribed a drug called Hydrochlorothiazide that might help.
Was just wondering if anyone here was in my situation, where the diagnosis changed, and if anyone has any experience with this drug?
