Travelling with Meniere's

The uncertainty of when an attack may occur is stressful and therefore we are hesitant to travel.   

As we know, stress and tiredness are two main factors, which may bring on an attack.    

 Travel may be a challenge but don't write it off, even if you just arrange to take a friend and go out for the day.   

You don't have to go far to enjoy yourself.  

If you find you enjoy a short trip you can go further afield next time. 

Take one step at a time and enjoy your trip
