Why Do We Sleep So Much?

So have you ever wondered why a person with Meniere’s sleeps a lot? Well I have a theory. Earlier today the sky got really dark with some thunder. The pressure starts to change and makes you feel funny, maybe a little dizzy. I think while this is all happening your balance nerve in you inner ear does one thing while your body or brain fights to stay upright. Don’t you think that would tire you out too. Most of the time sleeping it off is better fighting it with medication. Why take it if you don’t have to. Also started the BPPV therapy. That could also contribute to me being tried. Well we’ll see what happens tomorrow 🙂

  1. I will sleep for 12-14 hours after a bad episode. My theory is that it takes a lot of energy just to hold things together. Your muscles really are reacting like they have to hold your body still. Your brain is desperately trying to put things in order, and it’s exhausting.
