Meniere's Research. Nov 13th 2011. Wisconsin USA

e-petition Funding of Biomedical Research into Ménière's Disease Responsible Body: Federal Government Department of Health We ask that Federal money be made available for research into finding both cause and cure for Ménière's Disease. This is a disabling medical condition that affects thousands of people in the USA and around the world, between the ages of 20 – 80. It frequently results in loss of employment and income, and can bring with it both a complete dependency on care and the total deprivation of normal living. Ménière's Disease is a disease of the inner ear. It is one that can produce instant and spontaneous attacks of vertigo, making it impossible for the sufferer to function either at home or in the workplace. It is characterized by four main symptoms: 1 Violent rotational vertigo affecting balance - producing vomiting and loss of bladder and bowel control. 2 Aural fullness – a sensation of pressure in one or both ears 3 Loss of hearing in one or both ears and the possibility of total deafness 4 Varying degrees and types of tinnitus – a ringing or roaring in the ears As little is known about this disease, and most people are unaware that it exists, it is the aim of this Ménière's Support and Research Link to both raise public awareness and to seek funding for Clinical Research. We therefore ask you to be a signatory to this Petition. Madeline Empson Taylor Administrator Ménière's Support and Research Link Middleton, WI 53562 SIGN THIS PETITION
