what defines an episode?  
I'm just curious. 

I first started having Meniere's symptoms when I was seven months pregnant.  I'd be symptomatic for a month, then be symptom free for a few days, and then have symptoms for another month.  I stopped having symptoms after giving birth.  Then a year later, during last August, I became symptomatic again after coming down with a bad cold while traveling.  Since then, I've been dealing with the 1 month on, a few days off thing again. 

So my question is, which constitutes an episode?  The periods when I cycle in and out of being symptomatic, or just one cycle of symptoms/no-symptoms?

I would think that the year you had free of symptoms defines an episode. In the early years I could go for years between episodes. As the disease progressed the time between also decreased. One good day followed by one bad day seems pretty normal in a episode. One day I might just be tired and it comes back.
