Boy, never thought I'd be feeling this way at my young age of 49. I am in the prime of my life working part-time at a dream job, just accepted a new position that I really wanted, my husband and I just celebrated 26 years of marriage, and the kids are growing up into amazing human beings that any parent would be proud of. I should be enjoying life, right? Started hearing humming in my ears approximately 3 weeks ago with what feels like some hearing loss too. Went to the doctor right away to see if I could get help. Got the worst diagnosis possible, he said I had tinnitus and there was virtually no cure and then he gave me the number to an ENT specialist. Called and got an appointment for mid July. Over the course of 2 weeks the Tinnitus was coming and going, annoying symptom but I figured there are worse things in life like the cancer that killed my dad last year. Then last Friday the humming increased and I haven't had any relief since. I have also have this pain on the left side of my head which comes and goes. Just came off of anti depressants and birth control to correct other medical issues. Have suffered from Migraines for decades and now during the last 3weeks while I've had the tinnitus, I have not experienced one headache. I have always stayed positive even thought the Migraines used to shut me down, but now I somehow feel defeated. Went back to see my doctor this week and requested to go have an MRI, I have one scheduled for Tuesday. Been having trouble sleeping lately, and what prompted me to write this tonight is that I just woke up from a deep sleep feeling nauseous and dizzy. If anyone has any ideas that can help I would really appreciate your input.
