FAQs - Meniere's Disease
8 years ago I was diagnosed as having unilateral Meniere's affecting my left ear. My doctor performed a vestibular nerve section to control the attacks. Recently I have been told that it has progressed to my right ear. The new doctor I am seeing has told me that there really is nothing they can do for this ear. Medication did not control the first attacks I had before my first surgery and they have put me on the same types of medication this time. Can they do a second nerve section on my right ear or would this interfere with my balance.My new physician is telling me that he does not know anyone that would perform a second nerve section?
Have you ever heard of any correlation between barometric pressure and the onset of vertigo attacks? I have noticed that during days where the air is "heavy" I tend to have more symptoms. I also recently spent a vacation up in the mountains and I was miserable the whole time. I was at a high altitude and it was an extremely humid week in the summer.
