Stages of Meniere’s Disease

menieres-disease-stages

Found this on http://simplybowentherapy.com.au . I don’t know much about the Bowen Therapy,  but I can agree from my experience with the diagram. Luckily with the use of the Meniett Device, controlled salt, caffeine, & beef diet, & trying to control my airborne allergies, my Meniere’s Disease seems to be stable. For me when my tinnitus gets louder or hearing is less, that is a sign of a full blown vertigo attack coming on.   After many years I have learned most of the warning signs, if I act fast enough I can prevent it from getting worse.

Hearing Hope for Meniere’s Patients

One of the main symptoms of Meniere’s Disease is hearing loss. A patient can loose it over time or go deaf due to treatments that can help stop vertigo attacks. But there are some people that are very young & find out they have Meniere’s & already lost quite a bit of hearing loss. Luckily, I have only lost 30% of my hearing in the affected left ear, which is why at 23 yrs old the ear surgeon thought it was best to try the Meniett Device. Almost all surgeries & injections I was told destory any hearing that you still have plus with surgery the balance nerve is so close to the facial nerve. With the Meniett, I only had to have a tube inserted in the ear drum to make it work. It sends low pressure pulses into thr inner ear. But every patient is different & one might have to opt for more invasive treatments. You should factor in your age, amount of hearing loss & any other risks before moving forward with other treatments. The way I looked at it is if the Meniett, which keeps hearing in tact, doesn’t work then move on to something else.

But when you have lost your hearing there is still hope of getting it back. As advancements in medicine grow people are finding ways to help deaf patients.

Never loose hope with Meniere’s or any type of illness. Amazing things are still happening & if anything you can help someone who is new to a disease.

What Causes Vertigo?

One of the worse things I feel can happen to a person is suddenly loosing their balance, specially for no reason. As a kid, like most, I would be with my friends & spin as fast as we could then see how far we could walk in a straight line. We would laugh so hard watching each other walk left or right & then constantly tripping on the ground. Sometime we would be on the playground & ride the one thing that your friend would spin as hard as they could. Then when you’re old enough, you would have a few alcoholic drinks that would make you walk unbalanced or spin. Lucky, I was never was crazy enough to drink that much. To me, it’s like throwing money away in the river. I would never let myself loose control. But it was funny watching my friends get goofy.

But when you have Meniere’s or any other type of inner ear disease, the worst symptom is vertigo. Sometimes it’s triggered by moving you head or most of the time for me, I would be sitting in a a chair & boom! It’s happened when I driving on day, but luckily it was very short. Most of my attacks were severe & triggered by eating too much sodium, caffeine or beef. But of course one doesn’t realize they have triggers for awhile. It’s not like I would eat a whole salt shaker or 12 pack of Coke a day. When the disease was at it’s worst, I would have 14hr attacks every other day. People would joke & say your just drunk & I would say “I wish it was that simple.” This was back around 2002-2003.

Now I have’t had a full blown vertigo attack in several years. I follow my low sodium, low caffeine & beef maybe twice a week diet. I feel it’s because of the Meniett Device & keeping a tube in my ear drums to help with pressure. There are uncomfortable days either because of severe weather, pollen, or being sick. Sometimes even hormones can affect balance.
