Meniere's disease is a classic example of acute recurrent vestibular vertigo. Meniere's disease affects the inner ear. Dizziness Meniere's disease can last a long time (up to 12-24 h); frequency of attacks from 1 times a year to several times a day. For Meniere's disease is characteristic of hearing loss and the presence of vegetative symptoms. Pathogenesis of Meniere's disease is not yet known, known only to its pathologic substrate (endolymphatic hydrops). Peripheral dizziness is always accompanied by spontaneous nystagmus. Its characteristics depend on the position of the eyes: nystagmus increases with gaze in direction of fast component decreases in the direction of the slow component. Most often the process is unilateral, accompanied by hearing loss. During attacks the patient does not lose consciousness.
Water is a simple method of treatment of Meniere's disease. Japanese scientists conducted a study based on the condition of patients with Meniere's disease and the amount of water you drink. The study involved two groups of patients with Meniere's disease. 18 the first group of patients drank 35 ml of water per 1 kg of body weight for 2 years, 29 individuals from the second group was treated with standard diet and diuretic therapy for more than 2 years. By the end of the observation period in patients of the first group significantly decreased the number of complaints of vertigo and improved hearing, what was most noticeable in the last 6 months. researches. Conversely, the second group of patients hearing worsened, although the number of complaints of vertigo were also reduced. For these groups the ratio of improvement, invariability and deterioration of hearing was 4:12: 2 and 2:11:16 respectively. Therefore, Japanese scientists have concluded that drinking large amounts of water may be the most simple and affordable method of treatment of Meniere's disease.
Peripheral vertigo is characteristic of autonomic disorders, which are manifested by nausea, vomiting, pallor, sweating, etc. neurological examination pathology is not determined. External factors (light, sound, speech, flickering objects, the motion of the eyes) increase dizziness.
