What is Meniere’s disease?
Ménière’s disease is an ear condition that can cause sudden bouts of dizziness (a spinning sensation).
During an attack of Ménière’s disease, you may feel that you or everything around you is spinning, losing your balance and feeling sick.
During an attack of Ménière’s disease you can:
dizziness with a spinning sensation
feeling unsteady on your feet
feeling sick or vomiting
hearing ringing, roaring or buzzing inside the ear
have a sudden hearing loss
These symptoms, which usually occur at the same time, can last for minutes or hours, but usually last 2 to 3 hours.
The condition usually starts in 1 ear, but can spread to both ears over time.
She said: ‘I’m now looking at Queens Gambit with my finger in my ear. I’ve done the first episode 4 times because I have zero focus and my ear sounds like someone has crawled in and turned on a hair dryer.
Her post was flooded with many sympathetic messages, including Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage who commented: ‘Menier’s NOT fun … I feel your pain.’
With Jessie answering, ‘You had it too? It’s so weird and comes out of nowhere, Merry Christmas. ‘
Meanwhile, at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, the brunette triggered demands for reconciliation with screen star Channing Tatum, 40, when she uploaded a sweet message in celebration of his birthday.
The singer’s social media activity came just weeks after she was reported to have called it quits from thespian again, following their revived relationship earlier this year.
Magic Mike’s Channing is said to have created an account on celebrity dating app Raya after their breakup, saying in his biography: ‘And yes, I used to be a stripper. Sorry.’
The couple, who first started dancing at the end of 2018, got back together in January after a nearly two-month break, with a source telling E! at that time: ‘They are all back together’.
The Think About That star’s new song Simply Be In Love is reportedly about their relationship.
The lyrics to the track, taken from The Sun, seem to suggest the cause of their many breakups because they stormed into things too quickly.

She sings: ‘You always dream of tomorrow, and I still think about yesterday.
‘Wherever you go I know I will follow, let’s promise today. Take it slow, baby step, so we do not ruin what comes next.
‘Just be quiet, just be calm, so we do not rush what we are. Press, just have fun, it’s not a race, you do not have to run. If it’s forever, let’s just fall in love. ‘
