The disorder of the inner ear in which a person might feel dizzy, experience hair loss or a ringing in the ear is known as Meniere's disease. Individuals with this disorder would eventually have permanent hearing loss.
HOW IS MENIERE'S DISEASE DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of the condition by a general physician will require a hearing assessment and balance assessment along with tests that assess the functioning of the inner ear including videonystagmography (VNG), rotary chair testing, posturography and other such tests that an ENT specialist may feel necessary.
HOW IS MENIERE'S DISEASE TREATED?
Unfortunately there are no fixed or sure-shot remedies for Meniere’s disease. Treatment usually includes Motion sickness medications alongside medicines for nausea. A hearing aid would be given in case of hearing loss.

Complete rehabilitation procedures are implemented along with suggested rest periods due to the feeling of spinning head, which puts the patient at a risk of accidents.
