    Peregrine Kate do you have Meniere's Disease? That really plays havoc with balance and stability. When mine gets bad I've been told to try meclizine. It's been quite a while since I've been able to deal with the issue due to other conditions; what is the Epley Manuever? Don't forget there are more of us out there than you may know. Take care.

      No, my one really bad bout was related to flying. I can't recall the name they give that condition. Fortunately for me it was temporary, but that week was bad enough.
      My sympathy to anyone dealing with Meniere's. That seems really tough.
      The Epley Maneuver is apparently a series of motions in which you hold your head upside down and twist it in the hopes that something lodged in one part of your inner ear will get jostled into another section and be less troublesome that way. I've not tried it and all I know about it is what I've read on line ;)

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
