Meniere's Disease

Is it possible that Meniere's Disease can be passed on genetically from father to son? My father had it (I believe), and I have very similar symptoms that he had, including dizziness, verigo, and almost blacking out!

Hi,
Various causes have been put forth for Meniere's disease like idiopathic, autoimmune and because of viral infection etc. Although it is not hereditary, it has been found to run in families in some case studies.    
Hope this helps.
