hereditary. I am healthy except was diagnosed with Graves Disease which went to my left eye
which now has the muscle sewn in place.....any correlation???????? Thank you in advance.

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

As far as I know there is no correlation between Graves orbitopathy and Meniere's disease.

Customer:

Is Meniere's hereditary....is that what this could be?

Dr. Rick :

Also, meniere's disease is not known to have a hereditary component.

Dr. Rick :

Here is a great article on Meniere's:

Customer:

Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?

Dr. Rick :

There are many issues that can cause dizziness. Since your's has been going on for so long and are so frequent I would suggest you have a complete examination by an ENT doc. If you can't get in to see and ENT in a timely fashion I'd talk to your primary care MD. In any event I don't think this is from your Grave's.

Customer:

What does ENT stand for?

Dr. Rick :

Ear Nose and throat doctor.

Customer:

Of course...thank you

Dr. Rick :

They are the experts in dizziness.

Dr. Rick :

My pleasure. I hope you feel better soon.
