I have MAV or at least that is what I have been diagnosed with 4 years ago. I do not have the typical migraine, it is more of the vertigo. I am taking amitriptyline 30mg per night. Have been on this for 4 years. My doctor suggested weaning off 2 years ago, when I got to 10mg I had severe MAV episode. I am now going through another episode that has now lasted 6 days. Going back to the doctor on Monday. I got out my list for items I should not eat and found I had been eating things not good for me. I just hope by changing my diet again I can find a normal plateau. I am looking for people with similar symptoms so I can get some ideas on how to self heal. Even though I go to a balance specialist no one seems to really understand MAV or how to really control it.

Yes. Have been seeing and ENT that specializes in balance issues for 4 years. This last episode has just worn me out. Still having mini episodes 7 days later. Going to the specialist on Monday. I was just there in June and had not had an issue in two years. Just hoping someone out there knows something that I don't regarding treatment or maybe vitamins or oils. Thank you.
