The Truth about Meniere's Disease
If the room's not spinning right now, that's a good thing. But if you've ever been in a room, and you thought it was spinning when it wasn't, that's not a good thing. There are several things that could cause you to feel that sensation of dizziness, and it may only have been a temporary response to something like a fall or a blow to the head, but you can never be too careful.
Among other conditions that may be diagnosed with when you are suffering from vertigo, Meniere's disease is one of them. Though, if such a condition is present, it will also be associated with nausea, inner ear pressure, low-frequency hearing loss, and tinnitus (ringing in the ear).
Meniere's Disease tends to effect people in their 40's and 50's (though, it can occur at any age), and it only affects one ear. It is also important to note that vertigo is not necessarily a sign of Ménière’s disease, so it is important to allow an upper cervical chiropractor to examine your upper neck vertebrae to eliminate any other possible conditions.
Other conditions that may result in these bouts of dizziness include a multiple sclerosis, other systemic conditions or a disease in your heart or blood vessels. Those episodes of the room spinning when you are not may be followed by other signs that mean it's time to have an upper cervical specialist to examine your upper neck vertebra. They will be able to tell you whether your vertigo is the result of Meniere's Disease or not.
Signs of Meniere's Disease
Do you suffer from the sensation that the room is spinning even when it is not? Do you suffer from any of the above conditions? Then, you can no longer ignore your dizzy spells, no matter how often or severe they are.
Now, is the time for you to take back control of your life by allowing an upper cervical chiropractor to examine your upper neck vertebrae for any misalignments. They will make any needed adjustments to misalignments in your upper neck, so your brain can communicate with your body via the brainstem properly.
