Our ears play a very important role in our body. It is not just actually involved with hearing sounds but it essentially keeps our body’s balance and it is responsible for the body’s positioning. When our ears are damaged, it would be difficult for our brain to detect if we are moving or not and in that case it gives us a sort of imbalance. That particular part of problem is associated with an inner ear condition called the Menieres Disease. And although it does sound as outstanding as the other common diseases such as hypertension or cancer, it is in fact very incapacitating and will really dislocate your normal life.
The part of the ear that is targeted by this ear condition is the system of membranes in our inner ears called the labyrinth. This part of the ear is in charge of sending signals to our brain about bodily movements. What happens when a person experience Menieres Disease is that the labyrinth becomes dilated due to pressure. The increase of the pressure is a result of a blocked or obstructed endolymphatic sac. Although this ear condition is prominent among middle aged adults, it can also happen in childhood.
The symptoms of this ear condition include vertigo, dizziness, nausea, hearing loss and Tinnitus. The vertigo attacks on those who have this condition can be very severe in such a way that those who experience it will find it too difficult for them to do their normal tasks. Aside from that, Tinnitus or ringing of the ears is a problem that they must face. This is actually the presence of a ringing, roaring, clicking or chirping sound that those who suffer this condition constantly hear. The sounds that are produced by Tinnitus can be insignificant or can be really loud. Furthermore, hearing loss can be one of the toughest struggles for those who have this disease. It can actually get more unbearable after a number of attacks.
Unfortunately, there is no definite cure for Menieres Disease. What you can only do is to mitigate its symptoms. You may be able to get a vertigo and Tinnitus medication. There are also devices such as noise maskers and hearing aids that can help you cope up with the ringing noises in the ears and hearing loss. Furthermore, it is recommended to those who have this condition to avoid harmful substances such as alcohol, coffee and cigarettes. Most importantly, always try to have a positive outlook towards life. Stress will only make matters worse, by all means avoid stress and work on what you have and what you can do.
