MENIER S DISEASE
An inner ear disorder that causes episodes of vertigo (spinning).
Ménière’s disease usually starts in one ear, but later may involve both. Smoking, infections or a high-salt diet may worsen the disease.
Symptoms include a spinning sensation (vertigo), hearing loss, ear ringing (tinnitus) and ear pressure. The vertigo may cause severe nausea and imbalance. Hearing loss may become permanent.
Drugs for motion sickness or nausea may help manage symptoms.
Why people get Meniere’s isn’t clear. Researchers have several theories about what might affect the fluid in the inner ear, though:
- Poor drainage (because of blockage or an abnormal structure in your ear)
- Autoimmune response (when your body’s defense system attacks healthy cells)
- Allergic reaction
- Viral infection
- Inherited tendency
- Blow to the head
- Migraine headaches
- Fluid builds up inside a part of your inner ear called the labyrinth, which holds structures that help with hearing and balance. The extra fluid interferes with the signals your brain receives, causing vertigo and hearing problems.
Symptoms include a spinning sensation (vertigo)
Ear ringing (Tinnitus)
Feeling of Fullness in Ear.
Vertigo may cause severe nausea and imbalance
Hearing loss may become permanent.
Along with the main symptoms, some people may have:
- Blurry vision
- Nausea or diarrhea
- Cold sweat and rapid pulse
No more terrible Spinning and Vertigo now
Following have been observed since last one month during the medication:-
- No more vertigo attacks.
- Tinnitus in right ear continues 24/7.
- Piles and Gas problem has increased.
- Early in the morning/ when temperature is down I feel some time that I may get vertigo attacks or heavy-ness . But that didn’t happened as I cover my head with a woollen cap, I think it is some how preventing the vertigo attacks.
