Lately I have spent a lot of time wondering why my meniere’s disease is coming back. Last week I went to the doctor and found out my blood pressure was high, so I thought that was the reason. I am still having attacks, small attacks but attacks. Before that I thought it was the plane ride that I took in June. Well, it has been a month since that happened so my ears should have recovered since then.
Here is another theory I am tossing around, my vision has something to do with it.
Last summer was busy with gent injections every 2 weeks for a total of 4 injections and my cataract surgery, which was a month after that. It seemed like it was all squeezed together. After I had the first eye worked on I couldn’t believe how different everything looked, the colors were vivid and the sky was very bright. The time between having the right eye done and the left eye was strange because my vision was mixed up, everything was vivid coming in one eye and dull out of the eye that still had the cataract.
After the surgery was completed I had to put eye drops in many times during the day for several months till my eyes healed. This caused blurriness in my eyes. At the same time I was feeling the effects of the gent injections and I was having some of my worst attacks. It was at this time I went on disability.
My eyes got better, I stopped taking the eye drops and my meniere’s got better early this year. My vision was so good that I no longer needed prescription glasses just glasses from the drugstore.
Now some 6 months later my vision doesn’t seem as good as it was and I might need to go back to the eye doctor.
Is there a connection between my vision and Meniere’s disease coming back? I don’t know I’m not a doctor but I know that vision plays an important part in the balance system along with the inner ear.
