I'm going on 3 years of dealing with Meniere's and have had a lot of ups and downs, mostly downs. My neuro-oto is perplexed by my hearing tests -- most are showing little to no real loss (initially when it started there was minor loss in the low ranges). He wants to try treating me for MAV instead and see if that allows me any relief. I'm stopping the diuretic and potassium, starting Nortriptyline and magnesium, and have to add the migraine diet to my already lo-so diet. I'm a bit overwhelmed. Some questions: -One of my biggest symptoms is fluctuating ear fullness/pressure, which seems to be getting more extreme over time. Can this be a hallmark of MAV too? -No history of migraine for myself or my family history. Does this make MAV less likely? -What on earth DOES one eat on the diet?? Lo-so was hard enough. Eliminating CHOCOLATE and red wine are painful but if it'll help, so be it. THe long list that includes so many cheeses, avocados, beans, breads etc has me reeling. I have to feed our three young (and picky) children too, and it's hard enough without eliminating so many of our staples!
