What is Meniere’s Disease?
An inner ear disorder that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo – sensation of spinning, along with fluctuation in hearing and tinnitus (ringing in the ear). A typical episode might start with a feeling of fullness in the ear, increasing tinnitus, followed by severe vertigo which is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Such an episode can last 2-3 hours. Episodes can occur in clusters, with long periods of mild symptoms or no symptoms in between. The severity, frequency and duration of each of these attacks vary early in the disease.

Otoacoustic Emission Testing (OAE)
The primary purpose of otoacoustic emission (OAE) tests is to determine cochlear status, specifically hair cell function. This information can be used to screen hearing, partially estimate hearing sensitivity within a limited range, differentiate between the sensory and neural components of sensorineural hearing loss, and test for functional (feigned) hearing loss.

Tinnitus is the medical term for the perception of sound in one or both ears or in the head when no external sound is present. It is often referred to as "ringing in the ears," although some people hear hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping or clicking. If you experience tinnitus, it is important that you obtain a thorough audiometric evaluation to determine if there is anything that can or should be attended to.
