What are the symptoms of Meniere's disease?

Symptoms of Meniere's disease range from mild to severe. You may suffer bouts of vertigo - a spinning, dizzy feeling - and you may feel nauseated. You may feel pressure or hear ringing, buzzing, or other noises in your ear. You may lose your hearing during these episodes; although it usually comes back after the episode, most patients eventually lose at least part of their hearing permanently. You may have symptoms for a few minutes every few months, or all day for long stretches.
