I’m less than a month away from fifty. My vertigo troubles have mostly faded away over the past nine years. My ENT said that vertigo often leaves around eight or nine years. They attacks began on my 40th birthday, though what caused them really began four years prior when I mistook an ear infection for a sinus infection, assumed it would go away on its own until I had serious vertigo attacks and took antibiotics to clear that up. It wrecked my left ear. I don’t know how my condition compares to others who only know they have “loose crystals”.
What worked for me:
1. Keep the salt and sugar low
2. Stay hydrated
3. Put one hand on forehead, grab chin with other hand, manually open and close your jaw. Your jaw will likely resist, but keep doing it (and fake it out with erratic movement). Eventually it will loosen up.
4. Then try to pop your jaw by opening it wide and jutting it forward and back and side to side, trying to open the eustachian tubes so they can drain if need to. That will release pressure that may have built up.
5. I take an antihistamine daily (montelukast) to keep water out of the ear
6. Also a dramamine equivalent (acetazolamide)
7. During an attack, stay still, stay calm, focus on the furthest stationary vertical line from you (such as a corner of the room) and just gaze at it until the feeling subsides
8. When it gets bad, a nap is like hitting reset, if you can get to sleep.
My problematic left ear lost some hearing, and because of that, also has tinnitus. Tinnitus is a sound your brain makes to test your ability to hear. Why it has to be so irritating, I don’t know. A hearing aid makes a big difference, both in eliminating the tinnitus when it’s in and improving my sense of equilibrium.
Hope this helps. Any questions, let me know!
I never knew that salt and sugar can trigger vertigo. That could be one reason for me as I have been indulging my sweet tooth more than usual lately. I I will try #3 and #4 when I get an episode. And, I also have tinnitus, though it comes and goes. But yes, it is annoying!

When I’ve had vertigo in the past, getting my ears flushed helped immensely.
How does that go?
