Management. Stress reduction with daily exercise and meditation, low salt diet, elimination of caffeine and alcohol are helpful in minimizing meniere's disease attacks. A prescription of a diuretic can also be helpful.

Yes. It can present with hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing, low frequency hum)
Is there any real solution to the vertigo caused by Meniere Disease? I been coping with it for 6-7 months and I am growing real tired of it :)
Vertigo. Although not a definitive cure - Chinese Scalp Acupuncture can often be helpful in treatment of vertigo.
MENIERE DISEASE. Have you had your diagnosis definitively confirmed by an ENT? This is extremely important. If you have meniere's, why are you not on any meds to control symptoms (diazepam, lorazepam, promethazine, dimenhydrinate, and meclizine). Have you tried vestibular rehab? Intratympanic gentamycin? There are also surgical options down the line. Confirm diagnosis and stick with evidence based treatments.
Clarify diagnosis. Make sure that you have been evaluated by an ENT to reach the diagnosis of Meniere's. There are other reasons for dizziness. Vestibular rehabilitation - a form of physical therapy- may help. Medications like antivert, (meclizine) and paying attention to salt intake are also worth considering..
I have menieres disease. Had MRI earlier this week which triggered vertigo. Is there meds that can be prescribed 4spinning crackling in ear nausea?
Meclizine. We often prescribe meclizine for vertigo. It can help with the spinning and nausea.
Meniere's disease. Use of medications such as Antivert (Meclizine) is usually of no benefit in true Meniere’s Disease, even if it helps in other balance disorders. However, Valium (Diazepam) and other Benzodiazepines have a direct effect on the nerve controlling balance and its central connections to the brain. When Valium is given at the onset of a vertigo attack, it can prevent the attack from continuing.
Yes. Meniere's disease often involves vertigo - the sensation that you or the environment is moving- and changes in hearing.
I have been dealing with multiple neurological symptoms including dizziness & vertigo. Could this be meniere's disease?
Yes. Meniere is common and can cause your symptoms however I suggest you start with a good internist that can rule out other cardiac hormonal blood issues first.
Meniere's. Dizziness/episodic vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, ear pressure are all characteristic symptoms of meniere's. Your question is broader. Yes, could be meniere's but vertigo is a symptom of many different conditions.
