Sorry to hear you have been struggling. I feel your pain, I hear you.

I recently saw a neurologist who's sent me for an MRI of my head and left ear. I have tinnitus everyday mostly all day, right up until last night trying to quiet myself to sleep and even now. Apr 1st/23 were my MRIs. I have some numbness in my face, my cheek, ear and sometimes my tongue - apparently this indicates nerve 5, 7 & 8 inside my head. One of those nerves indicates the tinnitus. Follow up appt. coming up shortly, I'll let you know how that goes.

I find great comfort in hearing other folks' stories. I'm not the only one and it's good to hear what others have tried. I hope you find more comfort and joy in your life. Peace.

I had Bell’s palsy twice. Whatever you do don’t apply a warm compress. When I had it i had numbness in face and the nerve was dead for 3 months. The first time. I could not chew, I’d keep biting my cheek, it affected taste, even water tasted bad, ear pain and facial and eyelid weakness. I could not pronounce: b’s, p’s, w’s, etc. because half the lip was dead. I had a sinus issue for weeks before the first time. I had a lot of pain one night I applied a heating pad and fell asleep. I woke up with it.
I am glad you are seeing a neurologist. Back then (98 and 99) I went to ENT. They everyday did facial stimulation to try to wake up nerve. It helped after doing that every day. I was put on step down steroids. It didn’t; help. Not that I could see. I hope you get to the bottom of it and that it resolves. Keep hope in your heart and mind.
