Menieres symptoms

Posted , 5 users are following.

Was told today i may have menieres. I do have the symptoms. Had a VNG, MRi all that stuff. Have to see a neurologist. But my PT told me without significant hearing loss its not menieres. Is the hearing loss always a factor ?

    It doesn't have to be significant. With even minor hearing loss you could still be diagnosed with Menieres as long as you have all the other symptoms.

      What i figured. Doc who suspects menieres has experience with it. Why i chose to see him. Plus been a ENT almost 40 years. PT graduated in2009. Lol. So i am leaning more towards the experience. Even tho PT is cute. Lol

      Lol, I had the dizziness first for a year, then a sudden sensoneural hearing loss in the bad ear, Constant fluctuating tinnitus. I went to Stanford., and they still argued basilar migraine vs menieres! !

      They claim there are variants of menieres. . Cochlear menieres, with hearing loss only; or vestibular menieres. The fact is that menieres fits a pretty tight diagnosis, and it's pretty rare. Migraine can attack the inner ear. The symptoms can overlap, and some specialists think migraine may even be a migraine variant.

      My diagnosis is currently migraine, and I am doing well.

      I been taking 2 mg diazepam for vertigo and dizziness. But it doesnt work anymore. When symptoms first showed up it stopped it. Now my left ear is far worse. It barely does anything. 10 years ago i had the warm and cold water test. I couldnt tell the difference. Both sides it made the vertigo kick in full force. Had VNG redone. Left ear barely responded to stimulus. Right it was instant. Its super sensitive.

      Yes you can. As a matter of fact, migraine is so common in menieres (abt 50% of menieres pts have migraine and/or MAV), that it has led some researchers to speculate that they may be indeed related.
