: I have been battling with this problem since diagnosis in August. My ENT told me to wait a few months and see if it goes away, if not he would prescribe a diuretic. The dizziness has minimized to nothing more than a distraction, but I always have a "funny" feeling in my head in the area of the right ear. I quit using caffeine and salt, and started taking a vitamin pack and several herbals including Echinacea. I was wondering if anyone out there has had success either with Rx drugs or over the counter. I am not a "doctor" person, having an HMO , going to the doctor is like using a drive thru window. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Hi Jim, haven't spoke to you in a while. I have info from VEDA on EH and you may want to check out what they say about managing EH
www.vestibular.org
It says you may need a potassium supplement along with the diuretic to replace the through loss of urine. I don't know if an antihistimine(OCD) is advisable or not, ask your doc, take care, Paula
