Hi My name is Adriana and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm 31 yrs old. When I was first 22 I was diagnosed with PTC. I had no clue as to what was going on! and pretty much still don't.
A few years after my lumbar shunt surgery, I started getting dizzy spells and severe vertigo. I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease (Syndrome). I have lost significant hearing in my left ear and in the past week started experience a fullness or hollowness in my right ear. I'm afraid that the Meniere's is acting up again or that the shunt is malfunctioning and may need to be replaced.
Has anyone else experienced and or think that the Menieres is related directly or indirectly to the PTC??
