Long-term effects of Meniere’s disease

People who develop Meniere’s disease, which is a disorder that affects the inner part of the ear and may eventually lead to hearing loss, may qualify to get long term disability benefits. This is because of the significant effects that Meniere’s disease can have on a person, making it hard for them to work. Some of the common effects that this disease can have include:

  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus
  • Lack of balance
The severity and duration of the attacks a person experiences related to Meniere’s disease varies from person to person. In more severe cases, a person may not be able to work. When a person is no longer able to work due to a condition like Meniere’s disease, he or she may need long-term disability benefits in order to deal with everyday expenses, in addition to the expenses of their condition.
