      Yes the Ménière’s is bilateral but left ear is the bad ear. Supposedly Ménière’s is caused by chicken pox reactivating, but yes the vaccine just stirred up all kinds of run away inflammation where it was already compromised. I’ve tried oral prednisone taper and it didn’t do much of anything. I’m trying Antivirals starting Friday.

      I think AVs is your best bet right now. Have you ever considered the John of Ohio protocol? It seems like it has helped a few people with Meniere's.

      I have very bad allergies and am allergic to many supplements and drugs. I need to be desensitized to the Valtrex.

      Hey man, rooting for you, that vaccine messed up a bit of us, I just hate how people think it’s stress about the vaccine that is causing the tinnitus...

      Those people are assholes. Let them be in our shoes. I was excited to get vaccinated because I have bad asthma. Never thought it would affect my ears. The big question is if the tinnitus will settle down again after the vaccine. I got the vaccine in February. I also was put on Klonopin by the ENT and as I withdrew the tinnitus got even worse. So I have a double issue. Luckily I was only on Klonopin for 6 weeks before tapering.

      Be careful around noise coming off benzos. I was listening to music coming off them (3 days clean) and I got an auditory seizure that night while falling asleep! Woke up to permanent random sounding distortions.

      Thanks. I have been treating my ears like royalty since February. I haven’t even watched TV since then, sadly.

      At least for benzos, I could hear louder things a couple weeks after, no seizures.

      Did you take benzodiazepines regularly?

      6 weeks. at onset. Long enough to matter. I didn't get worse tapering off... but I did get auditory seizures (random chime sound effects exploded in my head one night while my eyes had flashes of light at the same time).

      I got HBO and steroids too.

      Good times. jk, was bad as f.

      I'm really really curious as you have legit hydrops, what the Reddit tapping does for you? If it goes away for a while and if it comes back in a wave?

      Your tinnitus is a mess of distortions post-vax? Any low tones or low tones that meander back and forth in pitch rhythmically?

      Salt restriction do anything for you whatsoever?

      I have like a xylophone note that wavers back and forth in pitch, as well as random sounds that just pop into existence and out randomly and in quick pulses all the damn time.

      Hate that low wavering tone the most. Fuck it to shit. Ringing isn't that bad... wish I had that still.

      The tapping doesn’t do anything. My tinnitus got loud, multiple tones and became reactive after the vaccine, then got worse on Klonopin.

      My tinnitus now hisses, whooshes, screeches, rings and has a low pitch rumble like a refrigerator. It is intolerable. I also get random beeps. I heard the vaccine causes inflammation of the 8th cranial nerve, as my hearing doesn’t appear to be damaged anymore than it was before. I didn’t get SSHL from the vaccine.

      High salt diet does not affect my symptoms, but it does show up on the audiogram as increased losses that creep up in the frequency range.
