Meniere’s disease

 

Up until recently Meniere’s disease has been best explained by a theory of too much pressure or fluid ‘overload’ within the inner ear. This pressure disturbance can cause symptoms of dizziness, hearing loss, and tinnitus (or ringing in the ears). Recent research suggests a possible correlation of changes in blood flow to the inner ear which may have the same effect on our hearing and balance. If this new theory is proven to be true, it may mean availability of new treatment options to treat this disorder. -Ashley Laha, PA-C
