sorry!! mine started with pregnancy....it sucked...I was given prescription strength dramamin to help with the dizziness.

I also started taking vitamin B12. that helps with the ringing (tinnitus) as well.

You need to talk with your doctor to see what you can and cannot take during your pregnancy. My pregnancy will be different from yours.

I know that keeping the pressure in my ears the same was and IS really important in keeping the virtigo/dizziness away.

Congrats on the pregnancy! I'm sorry about the Meiere's!!

I'm so sorry.
A diuretic is essential to control of my menieres, but I'm not sure of the safety of that during pregnancy so you'll need to talk to your doctor.

Do you have any specific triggers? I have 2 major ones - positional changes, so I have to get up from bed slowly and I avoid bending over at the waist. If I pick things up I always bend at the knees and keep my head upright. And allergies - if my sinuses are acting up, my meniereis is crazy, so I HAVE to keep my allergies under control. I use flonase, and nasal steriods are safe during pregnancy if this is something you need to consider.
