    Understanding Meniere’s Disease and TMJ

    What is Meniere’s Disease?

    Meniere’s Disease is a chronic inner ear disorder that affects balance and hearing. It is characterized by episodes of vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), hearing loss, and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear. The exact cause of Meniere’s Disease is not well understood, but it is believed to be related to a fluid imbalance in the inner ear.

    The Connection Between Meniere’s Disease and TMJ

    Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a condition that affects the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. While TMJ primarily causes pain and dysfunction in the jaw area, it can also have a significant impact on the ears. The close proximity of the temporomandibular joint to the ear means that TMJ can exacerbate symptoms of Meniere’s Disease. Misalignment of the jaw or tension in the jaw muscles can increase pressure in the ear, potentially worsening vertigo, tinnitus, and other symptoms associated with Meniere’s Disease.

    Symptoms of Meniere’s Disease

    • Vertigo: Sudden, severe dizziness that can last for minutes to hours.
    • Tinnitus: Ringing, buzzing, or roaring sounds in the ears.
    • Hearing Loss: Fluctuating hearing loss, often affecting one ear more than the other.
    • Aural Fullness: A feeling of pressure or fullness in the affected ear.
