Kristin Chenoweth, who has appeared in three episodes of the popular TV show Glee, has expressed her feelings about her new condition on Twitter.´

“Oh Ménière's disease. I'd like to eliminate you," she wrote.

Cause still unknown

It is still unclear whether her current situation could be related to an accident that occurred on the set of the TV legal drama series “The Good Wife” on July 12th 2012.

In that incident, a lighting rig fell and hit her on the head, which resulted in a fractured skull, concussion and three cracked teeth as well as neck, rib and hip injuries.

However, the specific details about the causes and consequences of her disorder have yet to be revealed.
