I like to now more on either of theses diseases. I have been researching the menieres for many years, its hard to find out much on it.Meniere's is a inner ear disease that causes dizziness, passing out/black outs. Can be deadly. They say you usually don't live longer then five years with it. Most likely because it is said to be a rare disease and hard to diganose. I have had it for seven years now. It can be passed on through family genes. I know it didn't come from my fathers side, I have been able to get a hold of family and get medical history. But not on the mothers side. Syncope is a heart disease. I was told that I have it in the beginning of July 2003. I haven't been able to find much on it. In my research on it they both are usually diseases you get when you get older. That is what the research I have came across says. Syncope to can be a thing that runs in the family.
The Meniere's disease all they do for me is put me on medicine that has to be switched at least every six months. Cause the body gets use to it and it stops working. They say all they can do for you is make you comfortable. The worst words to hear. Its not one of the disease they are worried about finding a cure for right away cause its not as bad as cancer, and others. I guess one of the scary things is when you are first told you have it and not knowing how long you have had it or if you will live or not they give you five years and if yhou make it pass that your a miracle. Anyways if anyone knows anything on this I appreciate it. Or if anyone has recently been diganosed with it maybe I can help.
