You might think that but other riders say the same thing when they ride him. I was dx with Meneres also. Most of my attack last about a week, once three solid weeks, thought I'd never be able to get out of bed :(

This is a tough habit to break and will require dedicated sessions to work on.
I think he's leaning and dropping his shoulder but how do you tell the difference?
