Dizzy spells affect everyone from your average Joe to popular celebrities. Take Ryan Adams as an example. The 2015 Grammy nominee has been frank about his struggle with Meniere’s disease. Besides dizziness, Meniere’s can also cause a patient to hear sirens. Adams describes bad days as experiencing sounds like a jet engine.1
While Meniere’s affects about 1 in 5,000 people, usually over the age of 40, vertigo is an even more common condition that results in dizziness. Treatments are sparse, although the approach taken by physicians varies widely. For example, in Mr. Adams’ case, treatments ranged from medicinal marijuana to hypnotherapy. Lifestyle and diet changes have helped him to function from day to day.2
