Meniere's disease causes what?

Nobody knows what causes Meniere's disease, an unpredictable and debilitating condition that causes vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus.
Definition

Meniere's disease is an inner ear condition that causes dizziness or vertigo, hearing loss and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). The disease usually affects one ear, but can occur in both.
Causes

Prosper Ménière, a French doctor, he was the first to describe the disease. The exact cause of the disease is unknown, but is believed to excess fluid in the canals of the inner ear that controls balance and hearing can be a factor.

This fluid, called endolymph, sends signals to the brain on the hearing and balance. Too much fluid can cause swelling in the inner ear. It is believed that this swelling distorts the information sent to the brain, causing the symptoms of the disease Ménière1-3.
SYMPTOMS

Meniere's disease usually involves a combination of these symptoms:

    Dizziness or vertigo, an extreme dizziness that prevents the sufferer standing or sitting, often with nausea and vomiting
    Ringing or noise in the ear (tinnitus)
    Hearing Loss
    Feeling pressure in the ear

Symptoms often unpredictable, may adversely affect the quality of life.4. Sometimes several days may be needed to recover from a severe attack of vertigo.
Diagnosis


Meniere's disease can be difficult to diagnose as other conditions sometimes cause similar symptoms. To find out if you have Meniere's disease, your doctor will review your medical history and perform a physical exam and some tests of hearing and balance. You may make additional tests to rule out that the symptoms are due to other causes.

  1. I have been in the tinnitus community for a while now and I have experience what you are going though with tinnitus , I do know people that have got
    tinnitus from having their implants done. Ringing in the ear after an implant can go away on its own, but that is BS of what the mouth and jaw specialist said. I have definitely seen and heard of a connection between tinnitus and teeth and mouth. There is a treatment for ringing ears and if you are
    interested you can contact Dr William herbal remedies that what I take that stop the ringing in my ear that was really driving me crazy, don't Lose hope .,I have found a solution for my fellow citizens . If you haven't I would suggest trying Dr William herbal supplement. Again, this is a thing that takes time and usually requires time and patience for it to work WITH no side effects. But I'm not hear to sell you the product, I'm only hear to tell you that it works, but it is a journey and can be difficult. I hope at this point in want away on it own. Good luck . his email address drwilliams098765@gmail.com for advice and for his product
