Have you looked into the possibility of allergies? I have symptoms similar to ms (was diagnosed in 94) and am now suffering from allergies that are manifesting mainly in my ears. Along with stuffiness and occasional vertigo when laying down I have some tinnitus. I went to my Naturopath who upon doing an allergy elimination test (NAET) discovered I have little resistance to pollen, flowers, and certain foods including soy. Allergies are a possibility for you - check it out. I am also interested in acupuncture, can you tell me about your experience?
