Should I talk to my doctor about my Meniere's disease symptoms?

The symptoms of Meniere's disease (such as vertigo, deafness, or noise in the ears) can mimic those of other disorders, so it's important to see a doctor to find out exactly what you have. For example, vertigo - a spinning, dizzy feeling - can also be a sign of a brain tumor, stroke, or several other problems.

Meniere's disease cannot be cured, but your doctor may be able to alleviate your symptoms. Medicine may ease the dizziness, nausea, and ear pressure that occur with Meniere's disease. Hearing aids can also help with hearing loss. If these treatments fail, surgery may help.
