Ménière’s Disease Weighs Heavily on Patients

Ménière’s Disease Weighs Heavily on Patients

Ménière’s disease (MD) is a clinical condition defined by spontaneous vertigo attacks (each lasting 20 minutes to 12 hours). It also presents with fluctuating aural symptoms (hearing loss, tinnitus, or ear fullness) in the affected ear. The diagnosis of MD is typically not made at a single point in time; rather, it may take months or even years to fully appreciate the clinical manifestations leading to a definitive diagnosis.
