In brief: Frequently

Over a 5 year period the vast majority of meniere's patient will have relief of their vertigo.
Hearing loss and tinnitus usually stabilize but frequently persist.

In brief: Not completely

About half of the cases of meniere's disease resolve spontaneously over 2 to 3 years.
Severity and frequency of vertigo (dizziness) may diminish, but hearing loss is often progressive.
