Oh poor thing well here is some advice. Stay away from salt, caffeine, and chinese food. Those make it way more likely to become dizzy, especially if you have Meniere's Disease. I would recommend antivert for the attacks. Just take it as needed. A vitamin supplement like Gingko Biloba would help the blood circulation to the brain so I would recomment that too. Seabands help fight the nausea and some dizziness too, I use them, they work pretty well. Anyways I am sorry you are going through this. I have heard a quite a few people who overcome Meniere's Disease. Good luck, hope this helps, keep seeing the ENT, and take care
I personally would try to get a prescription for Xanax, which is a tranquilizer (benzo) to calm you down during an episode of this nature. Although it won't do anything for the dizziness itself, is surely would help with the panic/anxiety and heart rate from a dizzy attack. From what I understand, they work very quickly, so take one then go and lie down or sit - whatever position makes you feel more comfortable. Might want to take something for the stomach afterwards as well.

A low sodium diet! It helps for many. Also some swear by a candida diet, to much candida in your body is very toxic. Candida can hide in your body for years and not knowing that some of your symptoms are from this fungi. Im not saying your vertigo is from this. But getting rid of toxins in your body helps with healing. There's many types of anti yeast pills you can take, Threelac is a great one. I would try the low sodium and candida diet, its worth a try to relieve symptoms.
