For those not familiar, MdDS is a condition where an individual continues to feel as though they are moving for longer than one month when returning to land after being at sea (most common cause).  Unfortunately, many patients continue to have disabling symptoms and responses to medications have been less than favorable for many. In today’s broadcast we will discuss the underlying causes of this condition so that the MdDS sufferer can better understand their condition.
