A Hearing Loss & Late Deafened Blog

Deafness and Meniere’s

In Deafness, Hearing Loss on February 12, 2008 at 10:30 am

I’ve been wondering (now we’re all in trouble when I start thinking), most of the people I come across with Meniere’s have a hearing loss or are late deafened.  I’ve never met anyone from the Deaf community with Meniere’s.   Are there people out there who were born Deaf and developed Meniere’s?  If so, what was your experience with Meniere’s?

  1. I am one of them … smile I have both BPPV and Meniere’s disease (mild case I think).

  2. Plenty of deaf people with Meniere’s. I’m one of them, recovered for the most part with lapses here and there

  3. I always assumed that the deafness was a side effect of the Meniere’s. Having said that I had the symptoms of hearing loss before the Meniere’s effects were noticeable.
    A big Hello to anyone else outthere coping with Meniere’s.
