In my case - when I have a severe attack - hours - like overnight - retiring to bed is my only option - however, with SERC and care on the sleep, stress,caffeine, salt and alcohol the attacks are very infrequent - last one 2011 if I recall correctly. I went for 15 years before they became debilitating with steadily deteriorating loss of hearing in my right ear.

Best wishes
