Meniere’s Disease – Symptoms, Causes & Treatments

Meniere’s disease is a condition which affects your inner ear, which is responsible for balance and hearing. As a result, it leads to spinning sensation, vertigo, ringing sounds, or some other hearing issues. In most cases, Meniere’s disease often affects only one ear. The condition tends to occur in those people between 40 and 60 years old. While this is a chronic disorder, some lifestyle changes and treatments would help alleviate the symptoms. In this guide, we’ll show you some symptoms, causes, and treatments for Meniere’s disease.

6 Symptoms of Meniere’s Disease

Hearing Loss

A common symptom of Meniere’s disease is the partial loss of hearing. This means that you would only hear lower frequencies of sounds. Your doctor or healthcare provider can access this condition via an audiogram or a hearing test. Some other problems with hearing loss, such as aging, or job-related loud noises, tend to happen in the higher frequencies of audio. Over time, hearing impairment in one or rarely both ears to the point of deafness would occur. However, hearing loss would temporarily worsen after an acute vertigo attack. [1]
