I was diagnosed with a terrible vestibular disorder called Meniere's disease back in 2011, and for a long time everything seemed hopeless. I had a terrible doctor and so much of what I could find online only made me feel worse...

Except for VEDA. The Vestibular Disorders Association was my one source of hope and good information in those early days.

Unfortunately, vestibular disorders are not widely understood by both patients and doctors. VEDA exists to correct this imbalance by educating doctors and empowering patients to advocate for themselves.

Navigating the waters of a vestibular disorder is a terrifying ordeal, but thanks to VEDA, we don't have to do it alone.

Veda has become my second family, helped me with education, knowledge, support and friendship and not being alone. I became a Ambassador to help spread the word about this terrible disease, but always refer back to Veda because they are such a awesome group of people that care.

I was diagnosed with a vestibular disorder, and this organization is amazing in providing information! There is a member forum where you can ask questions to people that have your disability. I was so impressed with this group, that I became an Ambassador. I highly recommend this organization! Lorna Paterson

Awesome organization!!! Very informative. A one of a kind organization that will help people with balance disorders. If it wasn't for this organization I would still be going from Doctor to Doctor to get some of the help I've gotten from VEDA. Education/knowledge is power. Join today, you won't regret it.

What happens when a therapist needs therapy? We quickly discover, we don't know it all! After a long period of floundering with the aftermath of my diagnosis with Labyrinthitis in 2002, VEDA quickly became my lifeline. Their information and reference material have been priceless to me, after feeling isolated for many years. I recently became an Ambassador for VEDA and want to thank VEDA for their support, pulling me out of a very deep hole!

From the time I discovered VEDA, it's been my go-to for information about treatments, lifestyle changes and practitioners. That first year, I became a member and have made a donation annually.

The one thing that doctors routinely fail to do is to provide information. A diagnosis is the start of a new life. VEDA, among other things. fills that informational void.

My go-to whenever I need a new practitioner or when I need to help a friend who has a vestibular disorder. All of the disorders are somewhat amorphous - they cannot scan inside your ear so it is hard to find the exact diagnosis. This site is filled with terrific medical information. It also highlights others experiences so that you know you are not alone. Most importantly I have found the top MDs, PTs and other providers in the US by using this site. Whenever I hear of someone with vertigo, Meniere's, bppv or any other related disorder I know they will find the most reliable information on this site.

The Vestibular Disorders Association website was one of the first online resources I found when I needed information on balance challenges following a concussion. Their website is easy to navigate, it contains a wealth of reliable information, and I was able to learn a lot about vestibular problems in a short time. It's like 'one-stop shopping' in that the educational materials are plentiful and excellent. I am hugely appreciative of the efforts the staff and doctors put in to create all of the resources. It's difficult enough to have medical challenges, this group provides an outstanding service!
