What is Menieres? 

Meniere’s disease is due to a disorder of the inner ear which consists of two sections: the cochlea concerned with hearing, and the vestibular organ concerned with balance. There are four main symptoms of Meniere’s disease: hearing loss, attacks of vertigo, tinnitus and a feeling of fullness inside the affected ear.


What causes Meniere’s disease?

Meniere’s disease is associated with endolymphatic hydrops or an over accumulation of one of the inner ear fluids. The cause is unknown but is suspected to be multifactorial.
