Meniere's Disease

Can I dive with Meniere's Disease?

Meniere's Disease is a recurring group of symptoms, characterized by episodes of fullness in the ear, Tinnitus (ringing), vertigo -- sometimes with nausea and vomiting -- and fluctuating hearing loss. The vertigo can occur without warning. If they occur underwater, it could lead to panic with possible uncontrolled ascent or drowning. Recurring episodes of vertigo from any cause should be a contraindication to diving.
