Meniere's disease affects the ear, which is the seat of hearing and balance. The condition causes vertigo, dizziness, fluctuating hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing or hissing in the ears). Attacks can be minutes or hours long. Over time, the hearing is permanently damaged. There is no cure but the condition can be managed.
