| | Re: Menieres Disease
I have a relative diagnosed with it but he's much older than you. He got diagnosed in his 60s. He was having vertigo off and on for years. For a while, doctors thought it was Benign Positional Vertigo (I think that was the name..). However, it turned out to be Menieres. Finally, he stopped driving altogether because he didn't know what a dizzy spell would come over him. It happened randomly. His condition is progressive but he travels the world, exercises, has a life. His wife drives him places but other than that his condition seems more of an inconvenience to him than anything else.
