Joanne it is wonderful that you have found your answer but it is not the only way. I have been fortunate to have remission or burn out from menieres and I suspect this has also happened to many more people who no longer post here or never joined this forum anyway. My payment for the vertigo ceasing is 80 to 90% hearing loss in one ear. Fortunately my last vertigo attack was in August 2009 and I hope it never returns. But for me burnout or remission has happened. Having said that if it returned and returned at the ferocity it was I would probably have surgery.
