Hollywood and Meniere's Disease
No. The Hollywood stars are not immune to developing the same diseases and conditions that threaten the health of the rest of us. Kristin Chenoweth is one such person who deals with the reality of need to get through every day not knowing if she is going to suffer from another attack of Meniere's Disease or not.
In fact, she Tweeted, "Oh menieres disease. I'd like to eliminate you." This condition she suffers from is one that affects the inner ear and can cause episodes of Vertigo, Tinnitus, and even hearing loss.
A Battle for Health While the cause of her recent health battles is not known, it is thought that she may have suffered this damage to her inner ear when a lighting rig fell and hit her on the head at the set of The Good Wife in July of 2013.
While her initial injuries consisted of a concussion, three cracked teeth, a fractured skull, and injuries to her neck, hip, and rib, she continue to suffer from more long-standing symptoms. Her battles with Meniere's disease could have possibly been the result of the head or neck traumas she suffered.

No More Suffering?
Just as the stars are prone to the same accidents and diseases everyone else is prone to, the same care is also available to them.

For Chenoweth and other sufferers of Ménière’s disease there is hope. Misalignments in the upper neck have been demonstrated to be a common underlying cause of Ménière’s disease.
