You probably recall that I had some problems with Meniere’s attacks at the end of last year. They came out of nowhere and then ended quickly (thankfully). Well this past week I have had some similar problems without the severe attacks just light-headedness and a little dizziness. What brought it on? I’m not sure but I have to wonder if it isn’t due to my vision or maybe a combination of my vision and my balance.
If you have read any of the comments on the posts that deal with vision and Meniere’s then you would have to believe that vision plays a big part in this disorder, which makes sense because vision is an important factor in our balance. My vision problem occurring this past week seems to be a loss of focus where my sight seems to “bounce around” making me jerk my head straight in order to avoid an attack. Of course that action doesn’t always prevent my head spinning but it helps sometimes.
I haven’t had my eyes examined since I had my cataract surgery so it may be time for me to go back for a checkup. I’m not sure that will help, but you never know.
