In stage 2 there is listed most of the 'help' that you may need to find.
Many of the treatments, but not all, can be obtained through the health service. There is regional variation in the availability of services. A talk with a sympathetic, knowledgeable General Practitioner, Specialist or Hearing Therapist is a good place to start. The list of problems ranked in order of importance to you will help to focus the discussion. It is important to have information about all aspects of the illness. Information is the key enabling you to play an effective part in your care. Understanding the options available for controlling the triad of symptoms is essential, and equally important is getting help and support for anxiety/depression. In addition, if possible access help for lifestyle changes, relaxation and stress management. A short course of counselling can help you cope with symptoms and problems at all stages of the disease. The Citizens Advice Bureau can offer advice and guidance with financial problems, benefit advice and family problems. The Ménière's Society can give support and information and put you in contact with other people facing the same problems as you. You can stay in stage 2 for some time getting help and trying various treatments.
Regularly assess how things are going and look for positive improvements. It can be useful to ask your family, friends and colleagues for their opinions. Life will have changed but is it rewarding and are you active and looking forward?
If a problem is still serious and not improving you may need further help.
