Hi, I’m new here and wondering if I have MAV. As some of you are aware there are similarities between Meniere’s and MAV. I have been diagnosed with Meniere’s but the doctors mostly ENT’s don’t agree with that.
My main symptoms are:
-Walking feels like I’m walking on a trampoline it’s constant.
-When I brush my teeth the bouncing up and down feeling gets faster and worse
-Moving my arms up and down also trigger the trampoline/bouncing feeling
-Sitting at the computer looks like the room is tilting left and right slightly, as if on a boat
-I’ve got ringing in my ears, louder in the right side
-My neck and shoulder gets tight from trying to keep stable especially at the computer
-Sometimes my hearing goes down a lot for 5 seconds and comes back in full
-This has been a gradual process leading to worse but seems to be stagnant at this crappy level, not sure
-When I lie down I feel like as if the bed is rocking
-I don’t get headaches
Some questions as well.
Does this all sound familiar too you? If so which one of the symptoms above?
Taking Betahistine or Serc for Meniere’s made me feel worse, if you have MAV and tried this, did it make you feel worse too?
Does increased salty foods also make MAV worse?
Thanks a lot!
