Posted Under: General Information on Meniere's Disease / Syndrome
I recently had someone comment on one of our youtube videos that “everyone knows Meniere’s is a result of viral infection and Valtrex helps it”…….One of the first things most doctors check for when they suspect Meniere’s is a blood check for the Herpes virus. If this is present then they might use valtrex. In that case it may well help. If you haven’t had blood checks to discount herpes virus, I would demand one from your ent specialist.
You can use L-Lysine to combat the herpes virus.
The fact is though, most cases of Meniere’s don’t show any signs of viral infections, so we must look elsewhere. It has to be remembered that if you have ever had a cold sore in your life the herpes virus stays in your body, so to say this is a cause or not is difficult as it may be present whether the cause or not.
If you have ever had a cold sore, the virus can show up in your blood test, so the study done in Hokkaido Japan showing the high numbers of Meniere’s sufferers have this present appears slightly flawed. That said, viral infections are a possible cause to check for and rule out.
Bottom line, it is an elimination process when trying to find your cause. Going through and checking for each possible cause then checking them off the list.
