Aural Vertigo (Meniere's Disease)

Aural vertigo or Meniere's disease comes on in sudden and frequent attacks of extreme dizziness, nausea and vomiting. The patient usually feels like falling and suffers from ringing in the ears and deafness. Examination of the ears reveals nystagmus. The attacks are recurrent but tend to cease spontaneously after a period of several months or years.

  2. The underlying diseases such as otitis media labyriorthitis due to infection or drug intoxication, arteriosclerosis, brain tumor, hemorrhage in the internal ear should also be treated.
