My mom has meniere's disease, and it really scares me. She's really going deaf, and I have had ringing in my ears for the last three months. I have the worst fear of silence ever, and I could not survive loosing my hearing. They don't know what even causes it, or really how to treat it. I'm terrified and anxious and my mother being the wreck she is, won't take me to get checked out by a doctor because she's in denial about the whole thing. Is there any chance that not everyone has has this looses their hearing in the end? If so, what are those chances?
