Hi, I was diagnosed with Meniere's about 6 months ago. I feel like I am on a boat. I feel unstable and sometimes my legs feel like they are going to cave in. I cannot make quick turns, when I do I get very uncomfortable. The room does not spin nor do I have tinitus but I feel lousy. I have been on a low salt diet and am taking a diuretic and EarVite vitamins. Even when I sit I feel like I am not sitting still. Laying down seems to give me a lot of relief. Life is no fun and everything is a chore although I am working full time and trying to live normally. When I do come home from work, though, I cannot wait to get into bed. I have had this happen twice before in my lifetime but it always went away after a few months, this time it seems like I am feeling no relief. I have noticed, though, frequently in the past few years sometimes a tight feeling in my lower forehead. I have told the regular doctor but he had no explanation. My ENT says it is probably related to the strain in my eye muscles. Anyone else have this. Sorry for being so wordy, just seeking help.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
