    Carolin,

    Thats the problem with this DD,so many symptoms can be put to other sickness.

    Therefore it takes awhile usually to get the proper Dix.

    It has been just a little over a yr that I was Dix, but the Symptoms were there for awhile before!!!

    Take Care!!

    I have ringing in the ear and vertigo and vomiting. They called it Meniere's Disease. Is there anyone else with that problem. They say there is no cure or no magic pill. How the H... am I suppose to find a job if I don't know when a spell is coming on. Someone mentioned Vertigo therapy, but don't know where to go for it. Help?

    Thanks,
    Halo
