Some Strange Symptoms of Meniere’s Disease

Meniere’s disease symptoms tend to come on as “episodes” or “attacks.” Most people with Meniere’s disease don’t experience symptoms between episodes.

Symptoms of Meniere’s disease include:

  • vertigo (attacks can last anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours)
  • loss of hearing in the affected ear
  • tinnitus (a sensation of ringing) in the affected ear
  • a feeling of fullness in the affected ear
  • loss of balance
  • headaches
  • nausea, vomiting, and sweating caused by severe vertigo

Many of these symptoms can be caused by other problems in the ear. Someone with Meniere’s disease will experience at least two to three of the following symptoms at one time:

  • vertigo
  • hearing loss
  • tinnitus
  • aural fullness (a feeling that the ear is full or plugged)
