Meniere's Disease

Meniere's Disease is poorly understood and difficult to manage!

Meniere's Disease impacts < 1% of the entire population. However, if you make up that <1% of the population, you know suffering from Meniere's can be very dramatic and even devastating. Meniere's is poorly understood, but the core symptoms appear to be a pressure or fullness of usually 1 ear, vertigo, and roaring/rushing tinnitus. Patients may also report a fluctuating hearing loss. The general theory as to what causes the above symptoms tends to focus on an over-production or under-absorption of a fluid known as endolymph. This fluid build-up can cause pressure, which then creates the triad of experiences outlined above. If you have Meniere's Disease you might also have heard of the term Endolymphatic Hydrops. At present, treatment for Meniere's Disease is limited, but speaking with a hearing healthcare professional about the potential treatment options, hearing related concerns and management techniques is a good starting point.
