Meniere's Disease

What is the best way to keep Meniere's disease under control? Does it usually go away?

Low salt and sugar, along with your diuretics should help. Also, take a Meclizine and keep your head up as soon as the first signs of the vertigo show up.  Bending down can provoke an attack. I used to sleep with 5 pillows. However sometimes the attacks are very unpredictable, and there isn't too much you can do.
As I suggested before, pay attention and keep notes of all your symptoms and discuss them w/your Dr. Keep researching until you find out what is triggering your Meniere's attacks.

I have been diagnosed with Meniere's but the medicine Meclizine does not hep me at all, when I am having major vertigo I have to take valuim. This is the only medicine that will work for my vertigo. Thank God I have not had to take any for over a year now because I have found that I have allergies. I get 3 shots a week and this has helped (along with prayer) to take away my vertigo. Have you been checked for allergies? I would have never knew I was that bad with allergies until I was tested. Also, no caffeine, salt, must have a good night's sleep, try to limit stress (kind of hard sometimes). But, I have a great doctor and he said 1/3 of Meniere's patients have allergies and you can control symptoms by controlling your allergies.

1/3 have allergies, considering how many people have allergy issues I am surprised the number is not higher. It is like saying 1/3 people with eye brows burp while eating.

NO - Not 1/3 of Allergy patients have Meniere's - if you have Meniere's and Allergies then 1/3 of those patients that have both can control their Meinier's symptoms better.

I am a 42 year female an i have just  recenty been diagnosed with Meniere's . I  have been watching my salt intake and taking the meclizine ( which makes me feel blah) so now starting Valium. I am so frustrated I have been like this for 3 weeks now, it just doesn't go away. As long as I am not moving around so much and just stay home I am not to bad, but when I go to Dr appointments or the day I decided to go to the grocery store ahhh  I get a bad a episode (that's what I call them) my ears ring non stop, my eyes hurt, my head hurts most of the day, I am very sensiti light its awful. I haven't been able to go back to work and I feel like my like has been taken away. Will this ever subside
