Living with Ménière’s Disease is a reality that many Upland citizens know too well. Random bouts of dizziness, vertigo, hearing loss, ringing in the ears, nausea and disequilibrium make life difficult.1 Ménière’s Disease typically affects adults between the ages of 20-50 years old, and may suffer from episodes that last 20 minutes or up to 4 hours.
Ménière’s Disease is a struggle not only to those that suffer but also health care providers seeking to provide their patients with relief. It is known that Ménière’s Disease affects two primary functions in the body:
1. The fluid in the inner ear which establishes balance
2. Vestibulocochlear nerve/Cranial Nerve VIII that relays information to the brain about the position of the body.
