Is Ever Going to End?

I have been diagnosed with Meniere's Disease.  I started experiencing symptoms in my seventh month of pregnancy.  I had two severe attacks of vertigo and missed a fair amount of work.  I thought everything would go back to normal once I delieverd but here I am eight months later and I'm still dealing with it.  I am on the low sodium diet, I do physical thearpy, I am on the water pill, and try to exercise as much as I can.  I'm still dizzy at least once/twice a week and I have fullness in my ear on most days.  I am depressed and put off many social events because I don't feel well.  I am a teacher and worry that I will not be able to go back to work.  I just want my life back!  Has anyone tried anything else that has helped them???  How do you go about living a normal life???

You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Also watch your diet. No alcohol, caffeine, & low sodium, & sugar. The Lorazepan 0.5 Mg tablets under your tongue helps. If you do have an attack stay still, Close your eyes for a minute then open them & focus on what spot still the spinning stops. But if you follow the things I mentioned you should be able to control your attacks. I have Meniere's & had it for the past eight years. You should also avoid stress. Make sure you get an ENT who specializes in Meniere's because most ENTs do not know enough about it to help. I went to 3 before the last one was honest & told me that. I now have a specialist & things are better.

js about your menier's disease,I HAVE THIS DREADFULL DISEASE one day you may wake to find it gone, have faith in yourself and deny it in your mind (force it out of your body) ask your doctor for PROCHLORPERAZINE tablets 5mg they really do work, good luck, paul
