Maybe Dr S thought @janb’s tinnitus wasn’t related to her MAV condition. I’d have thought if it was related it stood as good a chance of clearing as any other symptoms, eventually and with medication, My tinnitus came with chronic MAV, not before and it has gone now from being permanent one ear to just occasional. Presumably when my balance feels bit challenged, like today. Most of the time my ears are totally clear 24/7. If my ears are good, I’m good, i’ve found these last few months. If I get tinnitus in my left ear, I’m in trouble and MAV’s acute. I go days and don’t experience any at all now, the medics don’t know everything. Migraine ‘expert’ neurologist told me not to bother with caffeine reduction or any sort of diet but, trying to ‘mop up the bits’, I’m trying both and think it’s helping’. She just wanted to pump me up on Sodium Valproate. I’d much rather give up pickled onions and Chinese if I have to thank you.
Surprised Amy you’ve missed out on the ‘ear pressure;. An experienced migraineur like yourself. @dizzy3 tells me it’s part of the migraine headache I always say I don’t get. It’s, for me, just like the rear head pressure feeling, only in your ears and usually occurs simultaneously. Less caffeine seems to have reduced it for me. The back of the head (cerebellum) snd ears so integrally linked with balance clearing’s bound to reduce MAV and it was symptom that seems to want to linger. Helen
