I have had menieres for about 7 years and don’t know how it started. I’m 45 now and I was 35 when I had a stroke on the same side I lost my hearing. So not sure if that’s what started mine. I have dealt with the severe vertigo off and on for those 7 years. I’ve tried allergy meds and motion sickness pills and they didn’t help. I had an attack just 2 nights ago for the first time in 2 years so you never know. I just wish there was a cure. Did the valium work for anyone.
