You : You are probaly referring to meniere's disease, an inner ear problem that causes dizziness and vertigo and frequently loss of hearing. It is felt due to an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the ear and can be difficult to treat. It is not a vascular problem. See wikipedia for an excellent explanation.

Meniere's Syndrome: Inner ear, only one side ringing, vertigo (dizziness with nausea), may occur in families. Limit or eliminate caffeine, salt, chocolate. See a physician who treats these cases if the episodes occur often, consider an endolymphatic shunt (surgical procedure). Successfully works for many. Hearing aids do not work to reduce ringing. Some people outgrow vertigo, but not ringing.
