- Medications – there is one thing that you try not to do and that is to forget taking my medication.
- Carry your medications with you – I have a small blue bag that I got at the doctor’s office that I carry all my emergency meds with me such as Antivert, valium and phenregan. All’s it takes is one attack without the meds and you will never forget them again, I know I didn’t.
- I don’t know if this matters or not but I can’t sleep on my left side because it seems to make me dizzy. The reason for the left side is because my left ear is my bad one. Maybe it is just superstition on my part but I avoid rolling over on my left.
- After my drop attack I now make sure that I get out of bed slowly. I don’t want to risk having a bad fall.
- Even though I don’t think a low salt diet ever helped me I still am leery of anything that is loaded with salt. It’s not really good for you anyway.
- When I am swimming I never put my head under water. In the past I have been told that it shouldn’t be a problem but I avoid it anyway.
- I never drank that much before but now I don’t drink at all. Alcohol can play tricks on your equilibrium which you don’t need if you have Meniere’s disease.
- I try very hard to keep a positive outlook which can be very difficult when you are stuck with this disorder.
I am sure that I left out many things but these are the ones that come to mind.
