Three years ago in July of 2008, I was hit with severe, sudden onset vertigo, nausea and vomiting. I had about 4 attacks in the following 3 months each of lesser severity. I was treated for symptoms and have lost hearing in my left ear. I limit my sodium intake. However I have a constant noise in that ear like the sound one hears when a large shell is places at the ear, likened to the sound of the ocean roar. Has anyone experiences this disease? Are there any further treatments or even cures? What are is your history with this disease long term?
