Alcohol

I havent posted here for a while. I've been suffering from an undiagnosed dizziness/imbalance/disequilibrium for 16 years, the worse symptom of which is visual vertigo brought on by visual stimuli eg screens, movement, scenery, patterns, supermarkets etc and has left me restricted in terms of driving, socialising and employment.

I have previously had a throw-away diag of MAV and have tried a few different meds over the last few years, none of which have made any difference to the dizziness. I know myself that its not MAV and think it could be one of 2 things: either menieres (without the hearing loss) or an alignment problem (scoliosis due to a hip op when younger). One thing i have noticed is that the symptoms disappear when i drink alcohol - i'm not recommending it as it's a fine line trying to drink the perfect amount without tipping me over the edge in terms of dizziness. I would love to ask for wine on prescription I know its not a cure but i'm curious whether anyone else has noticed that alcohol temporarily reduces the symptoms. I'm wondering whether it's diuretic effects are responsible and whether that potentially means that my problem is an inner-ear problem.
