Possible Meniere's: Recurrent episodes of vertigo (a spinning sensation) accompanied by severe tinnitus for 4 days is certainly concerning for Meniere's, but there are other diagnoses that should be considered. It is important that you be seen by an otolaryngologist who can make the appropriate diagnosis. For my Meniere's patients, I ask them to avoid excessive salt, sugar and caffeine. NSAIDs are OK.
