Meniere's Disease

Meniere's Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that disturbs the balance system and/or the hearing organ or cochlea.
Excess fluid in the inner ear can be caused by allergies, inner ear infections, vascular problems, excessive salt, trauma and hormone imbalances.
Symptoms include dizziness, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus, fullness or pressure in the ear and extreme fatigue.
Treatment depends upon the needs of the individual patient and severity of symptoms. Most patients can control symptoms through medical means and lead normal, productive lives. Some of the treatments available are stress reduction, inner ear sedatives, inner ear surgery, diet restrictions and avoidance of caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes.
