I am happy to read that you are still riding. Hopefully my symptoms will subside and I can get back out there.
Although there is no heredity link (that my ENT knows of), my two brothers suffer from Meniere's as well. My older brother also gets no warning of his pending attacks.

I hope the medication and change in diet can control your symptoms. I know during my attacks, the only thing that helps is to close my eyes and try and get to sleep to relieve the symptoms.

All the best for you. It's not easy going low sodium is it?
