      I keep having full blown room spins soon as I lay down or move my head and sick.
      These spins constantly through the night and dizzy all day have been going for 13 days and counting and leaving me really wuzzy and ears shot through the roof and really struggling at the minute.
      Broke down in tears on the phone with Michael who's my dearest friend.
      Today still a living nightmare .
      Doctor says its a sever Menieres atracks but Labrynthitus on top as the room spins are constant and due see the doctor again Friday.
      Never been this bad in my life and knocked me for six

      Not been on the forum ms a couple of days but will try pop on if up to it...lots of love to you all ,glynis xxx

      Sorry about your challenge, Glynis. I have a lady colleague in our office who once told me she suffered from vertigo for 4 years but she is back to normal long ago. Not sure if she has Menieres or some other reason for her vertigo. You are a fighter. Hope you will sail through this obstacle soon. My prayer with you.

      @glynis-harbron,

      My sister has had vertigo for 30 years from Mal debarquement's disease. She has managed to adjust to it and is even working as a FedEx courier. She has fallen a few times because of it and it's no picnic for her. She also has tinnitus from this malady.

      Hope you get better, poor duck!

      Hi @Sailboardman,
      For me,I've been use to being dizzy and taking Medication for Menieres and room spins over 10-11 years but now blown a double whammy.
      It's mainly when I lay down the room spins round fast and then any head movement caused another like multiple menieres attacks and again soon as I wake up and try get out of bed .
      I am on Betahistine and Proclorperazine so the docs now prescribed Diazepam to help try get some sleep as the spins won't let me sleep.
      I'm quite a tough person but as the doc says is knocking me for six.
      Hope it goes away soon and the room spins stop and my eyes stop shaking .
      Great to hear your sister is doing well and fingers crossed It starts to get better.

      Still fighting ..my ears are naughty monkeys for sure at the moment but staying my positive self just about......lots of love glynis x

      Hey, have you every tried Acyclovir? If you didn't you should give it a consideration as there are increasing evidence that most meniere's cases are actually viral of origin partically the same virus as the chicken pox which is a herpes virus.

      You might have to take it for some 2 - 3 weeks to notice the effects, but the medication should have no dangerous side effects.

      Dear Glynis, I wish I could wave a magic wand and cure you (and everyone) in a second. You're in a difficult place and STILL replying to myself and others with support. I don't know how you do it.

      @glynis-harbron, I am going to trying anti-virals soon after my prednisone cycle is over (my hearing loss is back again, still mild at moment tho), and see if my symptoms ever relapses. No point in treating the symptoms when you can attack the cause directly to prevent the symptoms =P.
