A list of specific symptoms related to Ménière's disease.

Signs of Ménière's Disease

No two patients with Ménière's disease are alike. Nevertheless, below is a list of specific symptoms related to Ménière's disease:

  • The symptoms of hearing loss often occur around the time of the attacks of vertigo.
  • The symptoms may be experienced in only one ear, not both.
  • Often the patient feels that there is a pressure in the affected ear before or during the attack.
  • An attack usually lasts from two to twenty-four hours.
  • There are periods of relief from Ménière´s disease. During these periods, the patient feels quite well. Such periods may only last a few days, but that is unfortunately very rare!
