Meniere's Disease Medical condition Meniere's disease is a disorder of the inner ear. It can cause severe dizziness, a roaring sound in your ears called tinnitus, hearing loss that comes and goes and the feeling of ear pressure or pain. NIH Symptoms Symptoms of Meniere’s disease include: vertigo (attacks can last anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours) loss of hearing in the affected ear tinnitus (a sensation of ringing) in the affected ear a feeling of fullness in the affected ear loss of balance Headaches nausea, vomiting, and sweating caused by severe vertigo. Miserable stuff, but another progression of hearing loss. I've only had one really severe episode of vertigo, and carry my Meclizine around like folks with heart trouble carry nitroglycerin tablets. The only thing I've found that helps take my mind off the constant pressure in the ears and the loud hiss noise is going to sleep imagining I'm on an international flight, going somewhere pleasant, or returning from somewhere miserable. I'm reducing salt, caffeine and alcohol intake, and have some physical therapy scheduled. Anybody else have this? I hear the good news is it goes away in ten or twenty years.
