    And all of these are true statements...here are 5 that quickly came to mind

    1. Our next available appointment is in one year, let me know quickly if you want it, we are filling up fast.

    2. We don't take any insurance

    3. Take your diuretic, eat limited salt, and learn to deal with it.

    4. If you get rid of your stress, you will get better

    5. STAY OFF the Forum, it is making you worse

    Here are a few annoying things I've been told by doctors over the years, not necessarily in any order.

    1. You don't have vertigo so there is no reason you can't live a completely normal life. (Never mind that the OTHER symptoms are debilitating.) This one is the mother of all annoying things I have been told by doctors.

    2. Fatigue is not a part of Meniere's.

    3. Get rid of the stresses in your life and this will get better.

    4. Weather/barometric pressure has NO effect on Meniere's.

    5. Years of research proves that avoiding caffeine and following a low-salt diet DOES help. (This after me saying that I have tried this numerous times over the years and it has never made any difference.)

    6. Learn to live with it.
