Hi MAV family,
I know this topic has come up a few times before, but I wanted to ask again. I’m in the midst of a wicked MAV crash, going on three weeks now, and I had ear fullness that was getting really painful, so my Dr. put me on Prednisone for a week. I noticed that my rocking is diminished when I take it. Yesterday I forgot to take it and bam - I was rocking like crazy, even worse than a few days ago. My ears are much better, so I’m wondering if it’s actually better just to stop and ride out the symptoms until this flair calms down (I hope). The last thing I want to do it take something that will make it even harder for things to calm down than they already are.
Has anyone else had relief from steroids? I don’t want to take them long term, just wondering the physical reason they may be helping and if, in fact, it’s better not to take them. There are so many mixed messages out there about this and migraine…
I’m also still searching for a good Dr. here in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been to every “specialist” in town and none of them have experience with MAV. The most experienced one told me I had MS but that was ruled out and she then told me she couldn’t help. My GP is wonderful and does his best. Anyone else in Denver? Know of a good Dr.?
Thanks to you all for your words of support. You’re once again helping me get through a really “rocky” period.
