As I have written in the past rest or lack of it can certainly bring on a meniere’s attack. Not in every case but lack of rest also translates into stress which really ups the chances of spinning and throwing up. The holidays should be a great time to relax and not to worry about other things that are going on unfortunately that isn’t always the case. For some reason thanksgiving and Christmas seem to be stressful when it really shouldn’t be.
One thing that I am careful about especially at thanksgiving is going into crowded stores. While the deals are great, the packed stores and the long aisles at times plays tricks on me causing me to be a little light headed and possible heading for an attack. Luckily my wife does the Christmas shopping for our son so I don’t venture out on the dreaded Black Friday.
I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving and they didn’t overdo it on the salt. We just had turkey and few side items like mashed potatoes and cornbread. And probably the best part was that we stayed at home which meant no long drives for me (one less thing to trigger an attack!).
