I have extremely loud roar in my left ear alond with enough dizziness that causes me to have to catch myself periodically. Doctor says minears and that I am not a candidate for endolymphatic Shunt placement. This is dibilatating and depreccing. Can you help?

There are many causes of tinnitus with dizziness, one of them is Meniere's disease. Shunt has not positive outcomes in this regard. But still if you can provide me all details of MRI and audiogram, I can still guide you further precisely for sure.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have tenitis in my left ear and can barely hear out of it. I was diagnosed with Minier s disease several years ago. I ve taken steroids for it, but they didn t help. It has gotten worse over the last six months, when I started getting vertigo so bad I would spend an hour at a time throwing up. I ve been watching my diet closely and can keep my sodium intake to less than 800 mg most days. I noticed that most of my attacks happen right after eating and not necessarily meals with a lot of sodium. The only thing that seems to be in common is that they have contained milk. I get dizzy, (Sometimes resting helps, but not always.) then I get vertigo and throw up. I get really pale and sooo cold too. I ve heard the allergies can agrivate Minier s disease so I cut milk out of my diet as well, just incase that might be the cause of it. Any ideas? Maybe I was misdiagnosed?
