Tinnitus and Dizziness – This Is Meniere’s Disease
Are you experiencing tinnitus and dizziness, a feeling of vertigo or nausea without any apparent reason for it? These are all symptoms of tinnitus and may be caused by pressure in the ear, infection and an imbalance in one or both of your ears.
- While there is no cure for tinnitus these symptoms are sometimes related to tinnitus induced by an ear condition such as infection and the tinnitus may go away once the condition is treated.
Symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo and nausea are indicators that often lead to a diagnosis and treatment rather than ongoing symptoms for which there is no solution. As always, the first step in treating tinnitus is to attempt to locate the cause. If the problem is something in the ear that can be treated such as impacted wax, trapped water or an inner ear infection then once that problem is treated the noises of tinnitus will often go away.
While no one enjoys feelings of dizziness, vertigo or nausea in the case of tinnitus sufferers these are often a cue that the tinnitus is not permanent and has a readily identifiable and treatable cause. Those noises, the irritation and lack of sleep, your lack of focus and appetite changes may all be temporary and you are not going crazy! This is an actual condition with actual causes and a long list of symptoms.
- If you suspect that your tinnitus is caused by an inner ear problem (probably a vestibular disorder) you need to seek treatment right away and hopefully you’ll find relief from dizziness, vertigo and nausea as well as all the other tinnitus symptoms you are experiencing.
“Because of difficulties posed by accurately diagnosing and reporting vestibular disorders, statistics estimating how common they are, how often they occur, and what social impacts they have range widely. Yet even the lowest estimates reflect the fact that vestibular disorders occur frequently and can affect people of any age.
One recent large epidemiological study estimates that as many as 35% adults aged 40 years or older in the United States—approximately 69 million Americans—have experienced some form of vestibular dysfunction.“
“Meniere’s disease can cause severe dizziness, a roaring sound in your ears called tinnitus, hearing loss that comes and goes and the feeling of ear pressure or pain. It usually affects just one ear. It is a common cause of hearing loss.
Scientists don’t yet know the cause. They think that it has to do with the fluid levels or the mixing of fluids in the canals of your inner ear. Symptoms occur suddenly and can happen as often as every day or as seldom as once a year. An attack can be a combination of severe dizziness or vertigo, tinnitus and hearing loss lasting several hours.
There is no cure. However, you may be able to control symptoms by changing your diet or taking medicine so that your body retains less fluid. Severe cases may require surgery.
