hello Mr Krishna
Welcome to HCM
Sir it is important for you to know the natural history of the disease.
i will give you a brief overview.
Menieres' diase is a disease of inner ear. Inner ear contains the organ for hearing and the organ for maintaining balance.
So, Menieres' diase is associated with sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo (spinning of head), tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
The symptoms come and go periodically. Hearing loss has a fluctuating nature but slowly it becomes permanent.
In majority of cases the cause is unkown. In others head trauma, middle ear infection
, upper respiratory tract
infection are the predisposing factors.
Management has to be holistic in tehse cases.
It consists of medications and surgery in cases nor responding to medical treatment.
besides medical and surgical treatment
other aspects are also very important ie. understanding the disease process, alleviating depression by activities like yoga, aromatherapy, physiotherapy
and dietary modifications like avoiding excessive tea. coffee, alcohol and other foods containing high salts.
You should be in contact with an ENT specialist
for the management.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
