My hearing problems

My problem started a few weeks ago with some ringing sensation in my ears. Now each time I sit up, it is like the whole room will be spinning round me. I have tried some antibiotics, ear drops and blood tonic to no avail. Kindly help me.

Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes episodes in which you feel as if you’re spinning (vertigo), and you have fluctuating hearing loss with a progressive, ultimately permanent loss of hearing, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear. Because no single cause has been identified, it’s likely that Meniere’s disease results from a combination of many factors.

No cure exists for Meniere’s disease, but a number of treatments as prescribed by your doctor can help reduce the severity and frequency of vertigo episodes.
