Vertigo, Tinnitus, and Meniere's Disease
Do you suffer from Vertigo? Do you also hear constant ringing? If you said yes to both of those, your dizzy spells and ringing in your ears may be symptomatic of Meniere's Disease. This condition is accompanied by fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear, and bouts of Vertigo. It can affect anyone at any age, but it most commonly affect people in their 40's and 50's.
Causes of Meniere's Disease The causes are unknown, but current research suggests it may either be the result of a large amount of or types of fluids in the inner ear. The inner ear contains hair-like sensors that respond to fluids that move throughout it. There needs to be a certain amount of volume, pressure, and chemical compound that tell these hair-like sensors to function properly. Research suggests that a probable cause may be that when those factors of fluid are altered, Meniere's Disease occurs.
Other possible causes include:
Though, knowing what causes Meniere's Disease is not as important as knowing what you can do about it. It's very important that you not just live with it because if left alone it can lead to permanent hearing loss. You can begin by eliminating certain foods and beverage from your diet that may trigger this condition
