Most people will have, at some point in their lives, experienced vertigo in one form or another. The dizzying feeling and sensation that the room is spinning beneath your feet is hardly one you would want to last for any length of time. The sensation can be brought about by a fall or by hitting one’s head. Normally, the spell is transient. For those who have Meniere’s disease, however, it becomes a chronic issue.
This type of vertigo can be accompanied by a host of other symptoms. Inner ear pressure, some hearing loss, a ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and nausea are some that are frequently present. Meniere’s can appear at any age, but most patients present with symptoms in their 40s and 50s. Other disorders can also have dizziness as a primary symptom. Certain systemic disorders and cardiac or vascular disease are a few examples.
Upper cervical chiropractors can help unravel the mystery behind your bouts of dizziness. Through careful examination of the upper cervical regions of the spine, they can determine whether or not the spells are a result of Meniere’s disease.
Common Symptoms of Meniere’s disease
- Falling and trouble walking
- Arm or leg weakness
- Chest Pain
- Loss of consciousness
- Double vision
- Headaches – severe or unusual
- Loss of vision
