What is Meniere’s Disease?

Meniere’s Disease, often referred to simply as MM, is a progressive vestibular disorder of the inner ear where affected individuals experience vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus and a feeling of pressure or fullness in the ear. Eventually, many patients experience permanent hearing loss or loss of balance. There is no one single cause of Meniere’s disease and because it affects each individual differently, treatment and management strategies are tailored to the individual patient.
