WHAT IS MENIERE'S DISEASE?

Meniere’s disease can occur in any age group. However, it usually presents itself in young or middle-aged adults. Meniere’s disease is considered a chronic disorder, but there are several effective treatments available. These treatments cannot cure the disease. Instead, they are designed to minimize the impact of Meniere’s disease.

OVERVIEW
Meniere’s disease has several symptoms that can sometimes be mistaken for other disorders when they occur alone. These symptoms include:

  • Recurring vertigo (dizzy spells)

  • Hearing loss

  • Feeling of fullness in your ear

  • Ringing ears

Any one of these symptoms may be a sign of Meniere’s disease. However, patients that are experiencing multiple signs should promptly schedule a visit with an auditory specialist. You should also see a doctor if any one symptom occurs repeatedly.

HOW IT IS DIAGNOSED
Meniere’s disease is usually diagnosed with a series of diagnostic tests. Our staff cannot rule out other conditions without assessing various symptoms individually.
Diagnosing Meniere’s disease may require:

  • Hearing tests

  • Balance tests

  • CT scans

Once these diagnostic tests are completed, our staff can rule out other potential causes and provide you with an accurate diagnosis.

TREATMENT
Unfortunately, Meniere’s disease is not curable. There is also little relief for hearing loss. However, there are several promising treatments available that address both frequency and severity of vertigo.

If you are experiencing vertigo as a symptom of Meniere’s disease, then our staff may prescribe medication. These include motion sickness and anti-nausea medications. There are also several noninvasive therapies, such as hearing aids, balance rehabilitation, and positive pressure therapy.
