10 Signs and Symptoms of Meniere’s Disease

Mobile Slider Featured, Your Health

If you’ve ever suffered from an inner ear infection, you know how debilitating it can be, and Meniere’s Disease is no different. According to the Mayo Clinic, Meniere’s Disease affects the inner ear and causes bouts of vertigo due to fluid that fills the tubes of your inner ear. On top of the dizziness and nausea, flare ups can also cause some loss of hearing in one or both ears and a constant ringing sound. You might not be able to drive, work, or do regular daily activities at times, though this chronic condition varies greatly from person to person. Unfortunately, the disease is not curable, but there are many treatment options that successfully help manage the disease.

Keep an eye out for these ten signs and symptoms of Meniere’s Disease, and see your doctor if you experience any of them…

1. Dizziness

Meniere’s disease often isn’t diagnosed early on because you may only experience one symptom in the beginning, making it difficult for your doctor to link it to the disease. Dizziness can be caused by a lot of different diseases and infections, but it’s one of the main symptoms associated with Meniere’s disease. It’s also a very inconvenient and annoying symptom to have to deal with, and could have an unfortunate affect on your daily life.

Your inner ear is responsible for your balance and since the disease attacks the tubes in your inner ear, dizziness is bound to occur when experiencing a flare up of the disease. If you experience dizziness as a result of an attack of Meniere’s disease, it may cause you to unsteady on your feet and feel like the world is moving unsteadily around you. In severe cases, dizziness can make you fall over or trip while walking, making it dangerous to be driving, working, or even simply walking.
