Thanks for the update Dinesh. Kari is really missed around here!
For those who would like to know more, Meniere's Disease affects the 'little tiny hairs' of the inner ear, the ones that give us the sense of balance. There is no cure and treatment targets the symptoms, which can be a loss of balance causing falls, and the sick feeling some experience on "Roller Coaster Rides" / Astronauts weightless in space (sometimes resulting in vomiting). A friend of mine told me a mild wind gust can push him over, and he can no longer drive his car for any distance safely. It is quite disabling.
