My diagnosis started out as a pin stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack) stroke. Ultimately it was diagnosed with Meniere's disease. My episodes last from 2 minutes to several hours with vomiting, ear ringing, and extreme dizziness. Diuretics seem to help some but nothing last more than about 3 months at a stretch. It's like a switch gets thrown and an episode begins. I also get brain fog and am unable to put my thoughts together..

I have had Meniere’s disease for 25 years. I get so dizzy I cannot walk or cope with it. I get sick to stomach and usually it lasts 3 to 4 days. I was on water pill and meclizine. Now ENT doctor says I have benign paroxysmal positional vertigo so I have to have that taken care of. I hate the feeling; my sister had tubes put in her ears and does well now. Sad not to have cure..
