    Hydroxyzine for menieres relief

    0
    When I was first diagnosed with menieres (after most of the standard running around with tests trying to figure out what was wrong) it was during a trip to House Clinic in LA where a specialist there told me they believe that allergies can play a big role. I went to an allergist and he gave me Hydroxyzine, 25mg up to 3 per day. I noticed that I was able to push down my symptoms of dizziness and...

    Terrified symptoms returning after labyrinthectomy

    1
    I'm kinda freaking out today. I'll try and make my story short. Diagnosed with MD in 2003. In 2014/2015 things were pretty rough. I felt like crap most days. I was lucky enough that I could still work and go about a semi normal life but it was rough and I wasn't really myself or enjoying life. I had semi often vertigo attacks ranging from a few a month to sometimes going a couple months without....

    I am just over the 2 month mark post-laby surgery and doing well. My VRT therapist remains pleased with my progress regarding balance and vision improvements. I am also pleased with my progress, especially around the house. I am able to add increasingly more housekeeping chores to my day-to-day routine. I do sit down and rest often throughout the day, but am able to get moving again without...

    Trying a support group for the 1st time

    My MD story goes back five years ago when I suddenly had a veritigo attack. For the next three and a half years I suffered occasional attacks while trying to figure out what on earth was going on with me. Doctors were no help and I got dozens of opinions and suggestions. Finally I happened across an article on MD in my personal research and started implementing the Hydrop's diet. About 9 months...

    Struggling

    6
    hi to all. I'm a newly diagnosed 23 year old. We suspect I've had Meniere's since I was 16, but in the last two years it's gotten progressively worse. I currently have a cold that seems to be triggering the attacks. Any advice and coping skills you can give me would be greatly appreciated. My family isn't very supportive and seems to think I'm making it up, so it's a struggle. 
  • I purchased a new Meniett Device from Medtronic in May of 2013 for $3500.00, and used it actively for about a year. I have the receipt, and paperwork. Since that time, thankfully, my Meniere's Disease has been inactive, and I had the ear tube necessary to use the device removed. I am willing to sell the device for $1500.00. I know that it is in excellent condition, and includes the case,...

    Hi everyone. I've been suffered from MD for last year and a half. And diagnosed finally about half a year ago.The worstest thing for me is Vertigo attacks. It's not that bad as it was at the beginning (wasn't able to stand on my lags for a few hours) since I'm taking pills from my doc but it's really annoying and make me thick every 2-3 days. As the only position I can walk is slowly and with my...

    not sure, bud me doc thinks I have MD, the vertigo is terrible, always off balance. I've had 7 back surgeries over the years, now this. I had been contemplating suicide, it seems to me the best answer. Heck with my chronic pain I was considering it before MD.

    Coping help?

    1
    Hello, I'm new to this support group and to be honest I wish I never joined; it made it feel like a fatal disorder, which it isn't. I'm in my early teens (13-16) and I have recently got over my albeit long depression, but considering that I heard that this disorder existed from a good friend who also had it, being curious I decided to search it up. The world started to fall apart as I read each...
