Hi everyone,

I am delighted to find this group. I have lived with Ménière’s Disease for a couple of years now, and am slowly finding ways to cope. I look forward to learning from everyone here and listening to people’s experiences.

I am an academic at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK, am running a research project designed to collect life stories from people who live with vertigo. This is not a clinical research project, but is designed to spread awareness of what vertigo is like to live with. I would like to interview people about their experience of vertigo – how it has affected them, the attitudes they have faced, and what they wish people knew about what it feels like. You can find out more by googling my name with St Andrews. The research project itself has been approved by the University of St Andrews Research Ethics Committee.

If you would like to participate, please reply here, or send me an email ([email protected]).

I hope you have as good a day as possible, and look forward to interacting with you further.

All best,

Hi all. I'm new here and the topic of your research, as a future physician, was very interested in me

Of course, I understand how important it is to collect information on such vital issues. Your research project sounds very interesting and helpful to the vertigo community. I am sure many people will be willing to share their experiences to help others and increase understanding of this condition. Good luck with your project and I hope you can gather a lot of valuable information to help people manage vertigo better.
