Meniere’s Disease | Symptoms


What are the symptoms during an attack?

The symptoms of a Meniere's disease attack include dizziness, a feeling of fullness in the ear and tinnitus (a roaring sound in the ear). The dizziness is described as a spinning or whirling feeling. It may cause problems with balance and make you feel unstable while walking. Because of the spinning feeling, some people sweat, feel nauseated and vomit during an attack. You may also notice some hearing loss, especially with sounds that have a low tone.
