In brief: No

Meuniere's disease means dizziness occasioned by insult, sometimes viral, to the delicate vestibular system in your inner ear.
The sensation of the world spinning can be severe and cause nausea and vomiting, like sea sickness. The outcome varies. Attacks come on without warning, can be disabling while they last; but in many cases, the condition passes with or without treatment.

In brief: Rare

Few people due to the severity of their hearing loss and the frequency of their vertigo will become disabled from long term meniere's disease.
