In my last post I wrote about how a medication that I was taking seemed to bring on a Meniere’s attack. Of course I’m not 100 percent sure about that but I believe it did. Over the past 5 years especially the last couple of years this condition has really worn me down not only physically but also emotionally. It has really changed me and how I go about doing things. I’m careful all of the time whether I’m driving or at home I always seem to feel as though an attack is about to happen. And that is bad because I’m letting stress control me.
Earlier this year I felt like things were back to normal. No longer did I have the monkey on my back, my constant worry about my head spinning out of control, my forehead dripping with sweat and helplessness combined with rage that comes with these attacks. I though that the gent injections had finally worked and that would be that, of course it wasn’t.
As I have written over the past 6 months I started to have attacks again, not like last year but enough to make me stressful.
At least for me, stress can also be a trigger. I start to have that feeling come over me that an attack is about to happen and my stress level skyrockets. I don’t know for sure but it seems that the stress aids the meniere’s attack.
Recently I have been working on keeping my stress level down. I have had some luck controlling it and dealing with it. But sometimes it is a battle dealing with meniere’s as well as life’s other problems.
