The symptoms of Meniere’s disease, an inner ear disorder that typically only affects one ear, include vertigo (the sensation of spinning), fluctuating hearing loss with a progressive, ultimately permanent loss of hearing, tinnitus (ear ringing), and occasionally a sensation of fullness or pressure.

Meniere’s disease is a chronic condition that can affect anyone at any age, though it typically begins between the ages of 20 and 50. Various treatments are available to help manage symptoms and lessen the long-term effects on your life.

Cause–It is unclear what causes Meniere’s disease; one widely held but unproven theory holds that the condition may be brought on by an abnormally high level of fluid (endolymph) in the inner ear, although it is unclear whether this is what actually causes the episodes.

Meniere’s disease may be brought on by factors that affect the fluid, such as: -inadequate fluid drainage, possibly due to a blockage or anatomical abnormality; -abnormal immune response; -allergies; -viral infection; -genetic predisposition; -head trauma; -migraines

Given that there isn’t a single known cause, Meniere’s disease most likely has multiple causes.

Meniere’s disease signs and symptoms include the following:

  • Recurring episodes of vertigo.Episodes of vertigo usually last 20 minutes to several hours, but not longer than 24 hours, and you experience a spinning sensation that comes and goes on its own. Severe vertigo can result in nausea and vomiting.
  • Hearing loss.In the later stages of Meniere’s disease, most people experience some permanent hearing loss, though it may come and go in the early stages.
  • Ringing in the ear (tinnitus).When you have tinnitus, you may hear a roaring, whistling, hissing, ringing, or buzzing noise in your ears.
  • Feeling of fullness in the ear.Aural fullness and pressure on the side of the head are common symptoms of Meniere’s disease.

Episodes can happen weeks to years apart, and after an episode, symptoms get better or may even go away completely.
