Hello everyone! First I just wanted to say how excited I am that I found a forum like this. It's comforting knowing that I'm not the only one dealing with these issues, and with something like Menieres, it can feel isolating and upsetting at times when others don't understand what you're going through -- especially during an attack! I wanted to start this forum because I wonder if there are any others that suffered from Menieres starting at a young age like me. I always see discussions and articles about how it affects people later in life but I've had attacks ever since I was 6. I remember spending hours crying because my head was spinning and I would fall asleep and wake up with vertigo full in effect. Tinnitus was less of an issue growing up, but recently it has gotten more frequent and the vertigo still persists. As a kid it was hard, and now being 24, I wonder if anyone else felt these attacks at a young age too. Also, any advice for a struggling college kid dealing with this would be great too! A lot of the medications and procedures are so expensive that it makes me lose hope at times but I'm still staying strong. Currently on a low sodium diet and haven't had an attack in two months. Thank you!
