Aural Fullness and Diet Effectiveness

Hi everyone! My first post....I would like input from others who have been suffering with similar afflictions. I have been diagnosed with having inner ear damage probably caused by bacterial or viral infections. As a result I have significantly reduced hearing in one ear, tinnitus, hypercusis and aural fullness. An ENT specialist said I do not have menieres because I fortunatley do not suffer from dizziness/vertigo. My tinnitus and hearing loss is pretty constant from day to day, but the aural fullness varies a lot. The specialist said that dietary changes (low sodium) would probably not help, but |I am not so sure.

What I would like to know from people actually living with the affliction how long I should try a low sodium diet to actually see if it does make a difference. I have searched online but have been unable to find out specifics. Should I notice a difference in days, weeks, months????

Please help! Thx

One thing to read up on would be Superior Canal Dehiscence (SCDS). This inner ear condition has Hyperacusis and Aural Fullness as symptoms. It also can have low frequency hearing loss.

Re: Aural Fullness and Diet Effectiveness

I was told by my ENT to go on a low sodium diet, and after 2 months now I haven't noticed any difference. But I have been doing a lot of researching lately and read an article on menieres saying to give the diet 6 months before the effects of it are noticable. I'm staying positive and hoping it pays off cause for me this diet isn't fun. Hope this helps.

Re: Aural Fullness and Diet Effectiveness

Found the article and here's the paragraph from that article.....
When a strict low sodium diet is adhered to and a diuretic is taken reliably, the majority of patients can bring their disease under control and continue to lead normal lives. After 6 - 12 months, the body becomes sufficiently adapted to the low sodium diet so that the diuretic can be stopped. Strict adherence to the diet is necessary to maintain the Meniere's under control. There may still be an occasional attack, which may be treated by some of the other medications for Meniere's symptoms.
