    • Meniere’s Disease Silence is golden…unless it’s forever! Table 4
    •  Primarily symptoms: severe dizziness (vertigo)What Does it Do?
    •  Ringing of the ear (tinnitus) Hearing loss or eventual deafness Feeling of fullness or congestion of the earOther Problems
    •  There is a buildup of fluid in the labyrinth of the inner ear The balance is in the semicircular canals which are affected Normal balance of endomolph fluid is thrown offWhy Me?
    •  NOBODY KNOWS!!! Some researchers believe it is caused by a restriction of blood vessels (also associated with migraines) Your parents fault (bad genes) - causes abnormalities in volume and regulation of endomolph fluidWhy Does My Ear Not Like Me?
    •  THANKS MAW AND PAW!
    •  Does not target a specific age race or sex Usually only effects one earThis Disease is Nonspecific
    •  You go to your local otolaryngologist (ear nose and throat Doctor) and they diagnose the symptoms:Diagnosis
    •  Two or more episodes of vertigo lasting at least 20 minutes each Tinnitus Temporary hearing loss A feeling of fullness in the ear
    •  Doctors cannot cure the disease but they fight symptoms by: Recommend cutting salt from the diet and prescribe water pills to lower the fluid volume and pressure in the earHow Do Doctors Fix This?
    •  Prescribing drugs to relieve dizziness and shorten attacks Injections of antibiotic gentamicin into the inner ear to reduce dizziness-may cause deafness (sorry )Continued…
    •  Surgery to cut vestibular nerve Alternative medicine is also used tai-chi, acupuncture etc.Other Treatments
    •  Scientists are working to develop a microfluid pump to deliver vertigo relieving drugs to the inner ear Doctors seek to study the normal ear to contrast with a Meniere ear in the amount of fluid in the endolymphResearch
