      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      ruptured aneurysm - Cerebellum - PICA
      I just had my 2nd Anniversary of Aneurysm rupture in the right PICA of the cerebellum and subsequent subarachnoid hemorrhage. After 3 months from my hospital discharge, I noticed ringing in my ear as well as dizziness. After visit with Ear, Nose, Throat, the audiogram showed that I had single sided deafness in my mid range. I was also diagnosed with Vestibular Migraine with chronic Vertigo. The MRI and CT scan did not show any peripheral and local damage. Further evaluation by ENT did not point to issue with the mid-bone in the right ear. The Neurology Specialists believe that the brain bleed which was close to the Vestibular/Auditory nuclei was impacted and the culprit. I developed some unusual auditory issues like difficulty in sound location which I understand is symptom of single side deafness. The tinnitus is also unusual as it starts from the good ear then will start ringing in the bad ear. With certain frequencies, I can hear from great distances like hearing a conversation 50 feet away from me. Has anyone in this forum ever experience have single side deafness and tinnitus? In my case, I feel something in my good ear with a sudden drop in sound then the ringing in the good ear which will then ring in the bad ear. Has anyone experienced tinnitus as related to traumatic brain injury or other brain related disorders?
