I'm convened my tinnitus is a curse from God. Its been getting louder weekly sense it started in January. It sometimes shows up in my dreams, and sounds the same as its dream form when I wake up, and it went from mild to moderate in only one mouth. I'm scared to death that it will keep going and going until its louder then the loudest sound on earth! There are other symptoms too. Fullness in the ears, they get hot or cold randomly hen the rest of me in fine, head presser that changes sides, they hate all medicine even the non ototoxic kinds, and spike for hours with any treatment given for anything, and to top it all off just starting last night, the worst ear crackles every time I swallow and with certen head movements. My jaw is reacting to this crackling too. I saw an ENT Wednesday who looked at my records and barley did anything else and called it tinnitus with maby an unrelated Eustachian tube disfuntion. But he couldn't tell me why the sound keeps increasing in volume! It increases when I'm stressed, relaxed, happy, sad, everything increases it! It even increases when I do nothing! No medicine, trying to ignore it, surly I'm not the only one right!? Tell me someone knows something about this!!
