    Tinnitus Since:
    4/10/2012
    I worked construction for several years but mostly in the supervision area. Wore the ear protection since the mid 80s on jobs. Would wake up and on average about every 3 months have a low level chirping noise in the morning that would last just a few minutes and stop. This went on for around 2 years before I woke up one morning with the high pitch noise that sounded mostly in my right ear and has since went to both ears. I felt like it started because I had came back from Florida feeling really good and decided to level my front yard with a load of soil. It was fairly warm for early April so I thought I would move a few loads and stop. Well 1 neighbor came over to help and before long there where 3 helping me to move it all. I drank plenty of fluids but worked 6 hours long than I planned. I had the worst muscle cramps I had ever experienced and cramped places I couldn't believe would cramp. 2 days later I woke up with tinnitus and muscle aches in my back and neck that seem to change from one spot to another. My doctor took me off of 20mg crestor and the muscle pain stopped which I was able to start back on at 5mg without problems. I believe my body went through some kind of shock for me to start having T and problems with my Crestor at the same time. My ENT said I do have some hearing lost but I told him that 90% of the time when I'm having a low noise day, it really picks up when I shower, like some nerves are being aggravated. Here's hoping for a cure in the near future.
