Ménière's disease (also known as endolymphatic hydrops) is the result of a fluid imbalance in the inner ear.
Ménière's disease is diagnosed involving physical examinations followed by tests:
- Ability to detect sounds at different pitches and distinguish between similar sounding words.
- Videonystagmography (VNG):
- Test to evaluate where the inner ear is stimulated. The function is based on the movement of the eye.
- Complete Blood Count:
- The blood count is used to rule out any infection or weakness.
