Meniere's Disease
(TL008)

Introduction


Meniere's Disease (MD), also called endolymphatic hydrops, is a disorder of the inner ear associated with a change in fluid volume within a portion of the inner ear known as the labyrinth. When your head moves, nerve receptors in the labyrinth send signals to the brain about the body's motion.

Symptoms include hearing loss, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Persons experience symptoms at varying frequencies, durations, and intensities. Symptoms may occur daily or as infrequently as once a year. Attacks commonly occur suddenly and may last several hours. The very first episode may last longer than 24 hours, but subsequent episodes do not.

While the disease may occur in children, it most commonly affects persons between the ages of 20 and 50. It occurs equally in men and women.

Treatment of Meniere's Disease consists of medication and possibly, surgery with much consideration given to preservation of hearing.
