Hello Elderflower - I had a bout of this some years ago - BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) and it's to do with debris in the inner ear canal. It was fixed by one visit to an ENT specialist at the hospital, who manipulated the position of the ear junk by swinging the patient around on a special table contraption. No pain, no drugs, and no more vertigo. I remember how ghastly the lying down at night and having the room spin was.

As a sufferer of Menieres Disease I am interested in connecting with others who have this debilitating Disease with a view to discussing how they are coping with their attacks and symptoms, any new treatments that have been tried etc.
I was part of a Menieres group in Australia whilst living there and found the discussions and help most valuable in coping day to day, sharing recipes and remedies.
So far I have not been able to find such a group in New Zealand and would be grateful for any information.
Many thanks Sarndra

Coincidentally, I received this in my inbox this morning:
I don't have this problem, but thought you might find it interesting.

"Wheat is one of the most common food allergens found in patients with Meniere’s disease"
