Meniere’s Disease…What Is That?!

I didn’t know what it was until I was diagnosed with it about 5 years ago.  I decided to write a post about it only because it’s not something you hear about a lot and if you have it but don’t know it, the symptoms can be scary and debilitating.

About 5 years ago, I started experiencing nausea, pressure in my ears, and dizziness often enough to make me wonder what was going on.  I thought for sure I had a tumor or something.  I finally mustered up the courage to go to a doctor to hear what I thought for sure was the problem.  I was quite surprised when he came back with Meniere’s Disease.  I had never heard of it so he got out his big medical book and tried to explain it to me through pictures.  I was disappointed to find out that there was really nothing that could be done to help it.

So I lived with the symptoms, noticing that I really only had flare ups when I flew and when it was that time of the month.  Sometimes months even went by with no symptoms.  That is until a few months ago.  It seemed I had flare ups more often than not.  The pressure was so great in my ears that I couldn’t sleep at night.  I thought I was going to go crazy, so I started researching on the internet thinking there had to be something that could help me.

I came across something and asked Jeremy if it would be weird if I ordered some Chinese herbs off the internet.  I found some hope and was determined to try it.  I’ve been taking Tao of Herbs Clear Eye And Sharp Ear TCM Formula tablets 3 times a day.  I can’t believe the difference!  I seldom have flare ups and if I do, it is very minimal.  I am more relaxed and less grumpy!
