Have you ever thought that having Meniere’s disease has been the cause of you having other health problems? The first thing that comes to mind is hearing loss. While my hearing wasn’t that good before I was diagnosed with Meniere’s it is really bad now especially in my “Meniere’s” ear. Although I think that I lost a lot of the hearing after my last gent injection (I can’t say for sure) As for other health issues it seems that MD has also made them worse.
What made me think about all this was a comment that I read about acid reflux, which I have had for years. It doesn’t seem like there would be any connection between it and Meniere’s but who knows there might be.
Another problem that I know quite a few people have difficulty with is depression and with meniere’s it isn’t hard to see the connection between the two. Dealing with the thought that you may have an attack at any moment during the day is enough to make anyone depressed. In my own case I found that going to a counselor helped quite a bit in handling the stress and depression that it puts you under.
Something that I am going to try to do in 2012 is to live a healthier lifestyle. Hopefully by eating a healthy diet and exercising I will be able to feel better and have more energy. (I hope that I stick to it!)
