Meniere's Disease

Been going through some testing through the Audiologist and ENT Doctors.  They are leaning toward this (Meniere's Disease).  The symptoms listed here are exactly what I've been going through for about a year now.  Hopefully this week they'll be able to conclude the tests and get me the help I need.  Thought I'd share this info. and a picture of one of my tests with you.  I've found it interesting.

    By Mayo Clinic staff Meniere's disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo — a sensation of a spinning motion — along with fluctuating hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear. In many cases, Meniere's disease affects only one ear.
    People in their 40s and 50s are more likely than people in other age groups to develop Meniere's disease, but it can occur in anyone, even children.
    Although Meniere's disease is considered a chronic condition, various treatment strategies can help relieve symptoms and minimize the disease's long-term impact on your life.
