Tinnitis

Posted by lioness @lioness, Jan 19, 2018

Does anyone have ringing in the ears? At times mine is so loud I can’t think I don’t know of any solutions,if you do I,d appreciate hearing from you.

I’ve had tinnitus for many years, but it seems to be getting louder lately. I have autonomic and small fiber neuropathy, which could be what’s causing the ringing. I’m seeing a Neuro specialist soon, and I hope to learn more about what’s going on with several issues.

I wanted to go to a hearing aid person as she said she could run some tests, but I needed to get a referral from my doctor first. I doubt if he will give me one because he said just put noise on louder and you won’t notice it…ha…easy for him to say. The next time I go to him tho, I will ask for a referral.

What a lame thing for your doctor to say!

Some audiologists specialize in tinnitus. There are things that can be done to help you live with it. I have had it for over 5 years…..in my left ear from an acoustic neuroma, but this is a quiet locust-like ringing. Radiation of my right ear for my cancer has left me with a very loud tinnitus in the right ear….and its severity varies. A loud environment will exacerbate it for hours after. I accept it as being better than cancer in my ear, but some people need help in dealing with it. Find an audiologist in your area who deals with it.

Mine started roughly a month ago. I’m going to a functional-medicine specialist on Monday, and this will definitely be on my list of symptoms. I have very sensitive hearing (always have), and talk about annoying!!!

Hmmm, never have heard of a functional medicine specialist…maybe he/she has the answer…let us know how things go for you!
