Inner Ear Trouble Symptoms - dizziness, ringing and deafness

I found this article to be quite interesting as it provides some insight on dizziness and ear ringing which I tend to experience;

"Dear Dr. Donohue: Our 45-year-old daughter has recently been diagnosed with Meniere's disease. For five months, she suffered from bad headache, swishing sounds in her ear and a loss of balance. The doctor tells us there is no cure.

She is on a salt-free, caffeine-free diet. She also has lost her voice. Is there anything that can be done to relieve these symptoms? Is there a cure? -- M.M.

Dr. Donohue: Meniere's (men-YAIRS) is a triad of symptoms that comes in spells: vertigo, tinnitus and hearing loss. Vertigo is dizziness, often described as a whirling, spinning sensation that lasts for 20 or more minutes. Tinnitus is noises in the ear. It, too, comes in episodes, along with vertigo and hearing loss. As time passes, the intervals between attacks lessen, and these symptoms become more or less permanent...."
