After experiencing a few dizzy spells, and some loss of hearing in one ear from Meniere's disease, I saw an ENT who felt immediate inner ear injections would prevent further hearing loss. I highly recommend asking for anesthesia as the first two injections were given without it, and were very painful. The pain did not last, yet made me fear going back. I then went for steroid injections given under general anesthesia. I feel the results have been worthwhile. I have not had an attack of dizziness since (which had been bad enough to cause nausea and keep me in bed all day), nor is my hearing loss any worse. He asked why I did not come sooner, but I found it hard to distinguish my early symptoms from a flu or virus at first. My advice is to take even minor hearing loss seriously, and get checked out.

I have been sick and dizzy. Every time I stand up I feel sick and it can last all day and all I want to do is sleep. Meniere's disease is a horrible feeling like having a hangover. I am waiting for an ENT test.
