Meniere’s disease is caused by an imbalance in the fluid of the inner ear. Symptoms include episodes of spinning dizziness lasting longer than 15 minutes accompanied by decreased hearing, pressure and ringing in the ear. Such attacks come and go, often unpredictably. We discussed this condition and its treatment with Dr. David Kaylie, Associate Professor and Medical Director of the Vestibular Lab in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at Duke University Medical Center.

    When I get dizzy I lie flat on the bed with a pillow under my neck to make my head hang down. Then I turn my head slowly from side to side for 10 minutes or so. This usually helps.

    Does anybody know a home remedy or a way to dwindle down the pain?? And what are the long term treatment??

    I’ve worked with people who have had Maniere’s. It’s a terrible disease and I seriously pray that no one gets it.

    I have a friend with Meniere’s – really bad stuff. He took Diazepam for years but that often left him feeling sedated :/ – Anyhow, thanks for the information…
