Ears and balance problems

I am wondering if you have any signs of hearing loss along with tinnitus and vertigo? They often go together. Untreated hearing loss can be an issue, but even when treated that doesn't always make the other issues go away.

Have you seen an ENT specialist about your concerns?

Yes, I have seen a specialist but as you probably know, not much can be done. I have had tinnitus for a couple of years now. Then the balance thing kicked in. When this flares up I take a medication called Betahistamine, that controls dizziness. I think it helps some. When the flare ups go away I stop that medication. As for tinnitus I play sounds with pods to relieve some days of louder noises. I keep hoping there will a cure for these problems. As of now, my hearing loss in minimal. Thanks for writing.
