Exclamation No Awareness

It is so frustrating seeing medical commercials or medical documentaries about everything disorder under the sun but you NEVER hear about inner ear disorders. How many of you had heard about them BEFORE you got them? I didnt even know what they were until I got it myself! I really think there should be more awareness out there for these disorders!! To let people know they are the only ones this affects. Anyone know how we can change that??

Could just be nerves.

Re: No Awareness

HiTummy I wasrelatively dizzy free cept for a couple of months each year for about ten years T Once in a whille I'd get dizzy at night Then my ENT told me it was ok for meto go back to the mountains so I went to the Rockies in Fall of 04 ,Had surgery in 05 Flew twice last fall and dizzies came back
Some of it is due to my Fibro
Tummy I like your name should have thought of that one lol as I have severe IBS and Fibro
Charlotte I'd check and see if you are developing IFibromyalgia Dizzies are a symptom along with Gastro problems and about 17 other very user unfriendly symptoms Rose
