Iniatally my doctor thought that i had Ménière's as I have been suffering since October 2016. The wait time on the NHS was 20 months so I took matter into my own hands and went private.
I would appreciate any thoughts on this matter.
I went to the private ENT appointment (£185) the Dr was very good, had a peep in my ears and all was good. He took a note of all my symptoms. He did a couple of tests and made me dizzy and feel ill. He did the Epley Maneuvre (major dizziness and eyes flicking) and i was then send to audiology for a hearing test and my hearing is perfect in both ears.
His conclusion was that I have BPPV in my right ear. He said to cut down on the betahistine from three 16mg tablets to two per day as they didn't really do anything. He said that with time the BPPV will go away by itself or I could do exercises that would help shift the crystals and help with dizziness.
I totally forgot to ask him about the buzzing (tinnitus) in both my ears? Is this common of BPPV and if so will it go away also?
The day after I was feeling ok til I did the exercises recommended and then I was vomiting and ill and slept for two hours. I had to take a Buccastem, the next day I was wobbly and sick and very dizzy. I had to take two more Buccastem that day.
I am feeling ok now but it took 3 days for me to feel myself again. I am still taking three Betahistine per day and scared to cut down... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. S.
