Hi, My gp suspects I have Menieres or similar with BPPV and has prescribed Beta histone. I have concerns as I am super allergic to various things including some medications. I take zyrtec/cetrizine daily as it is year round. And in Summer or if in an attack I take an additional medicine. Im afraid to take Betahistine with my history of allergies .
My dizzy story: It all started with Labrynthitis in September after severe allergies for a week or so and then a cold. I had Spinning Vertigo attacks every few hours daily. This every few hours element went away after 3 weeks, that said I had some ear wooshing after and a fuzzy head feeling. I also had occasional Vertigo start if I bent down or looked up.
Come Boxing Day, I awoke to severe spinning which has been continuous since ever time I lay down, turn in my sleep, turn my head wrong, sometimes even watching TV. I have ringing and ear pressure along with a fuzzy headache 24/7 with attacks sometimes hourly and I've tried Epley about 20 times. It is so bad I cry each time I do the maneuver, but after an hour of it giving me less pressure/ringing it comes back.
My GP now thinks I have Menieres in both ears - as both ring, etc. with fluid Hydrops and BPPV. Does anyone have experience with similar using Betahistine whole being allergic to varous things?
I look forward to hearing from you soon ...
