I have had intermittent bouts of vertigo for years, that last for different periods of time. I have never been given the dx of meniere's disease. I usually take antivert, which doesn't help much. I have been having daily spells lately, which make me nauseated. They are worse with movement. The last time my md said I had an inner ear infection, although I had no symptoms of that, ie, pain, fever, etc.

I read recently that this disease can be more frequent in persons who have auto immune diseases. I also have been diagnosed with sarcoidosis, which originally affected my lungs. Is there any validation of this, and does this affect the treatment/prognosis

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you to have thyroid function tests, audiometry and MRI brain with contrast to sort out the problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
