In brief: Hearing and balance

Méni?re's disease is a disorder of the inner ear characterized by recurrent vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus (noise in the ear) and ear pressure.
Your history will be the most important part of securing the diagnosis. A hearing test and possibly tests to evaluate your balance system will supplement the information provided by your history. There is no single test to diagnose menieres.
