What causes vertigo and sudden hearing loss?

My girlfriend who is 62 this July, weighs 120 is 5 8 , and is recently suffering from severe vertigo and sudden hearing loss. Also, she exercises several times daily prior to this developement and drinks beet juice twice or three times daily for better energy. She lives in Mexico and her docs there are suggesting meniere s disease. Could there be a relationship between her 3+ month of beet juice consumption daily and the vertigo and sudden onset hearing loss?

Hello,

I can understand your concern. I didn't find any relationship between beet juice consumption and vertigo and sudden onset hearing loss. As she consulted with a physician and diagnosed as Meniere's disease. So kindly confirm with ENT surgeon. Other causes may be sudden trauma, injury. Kindly rule out other causes with ENT surgeon.

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

Regards,

hi i had sudden hearing loss last July 2015, along with a terrible bout of vertigo. I have been to three ent doctors which included going to Univeristy of Michigan. I was told it was a virus. I m so much better than I was a year ago, however, I never got my hearing back and I get this sound in my ear like a rubber band noise. Not always sometimes it depends on certain movements of my head. What is causing this. No one seems to be able to help me.

Hi, this does not happen on a regular basis but many times I wake up to newsman/woman talking about news. Usually this happens around 5:00 a.m. and I am lying on my right ear. If I lift my ear from the pillow, I hear nothing. Sometimes the news are so vivid to me that I could almost repeat them verbatim. It is just annoying to me. I have a radio/telephone at my home and thought that I might be being used as an antennae but this also happens when I am away from home. I am interested in news but not at 5:00 am.

Hello. I am only 19 years old but my blood pressure tends to run really high. It generally runs around 150/100. I also have been having a lot of headaches lately and dizzy spells. I won t be doing anything and I will out of nowhere feel intense dizziness and vertigo for a few seconds, and then it goes away. This happens at least once a half hour. I m not overweight. What do you think? I m trying to get into the navy, so I don t really want to go see a doctor about it until after i get in, but I don t know how serious of a problem this is or if it can wait that long. I do have a history of high blood pressure in my family.

I have been constantly dizzy for the last week or so... I had vertigo in October, and have a leftover perscription of Meclizine 25MG that seem to help. The dizziness persists whether I m sitting or when I stand up. Standing up increases it quite a bit, then my ears feel like they are full and I can hear my heartbeat in my ears, and not much else.

Hi I am a 33 yr old male; I had an attack of vertigo almost three weeks back. I went to ER where they said it s Vestibular neuritis and I was put on 8mg Serc and 5mg Stematil. I took the meds for 5 days and was apparently fine. On the 8th day had this nausea with a little wobbly feeling; consulted a local doc and he started me on 16mg Serc for 5 days. The moment I took 16mg my head had this fullness feeling and my head was almost always wobbly. 5 days after I went to Neurology and they said my neurological exam was fine but I should take 5mg stem and 8mg serc for 7 days. The next day I consulted an ENT Surgeon and he said it s Viral Labyrinthitis and that I should be fine by the end of the present medicinal course. But even though I am taking the meds, my head still feels wobbly and have this occasional nauseated feeling. I am very concerned as I have to travel in a month and my symptoms does not seem to be getting any better. An advice is much appreciated.
