Hi there, Sorry if this is in the wrong section. My girlfriend is deaf and 6 months ago had an cochlear implant put in. Six months on she's getting the following symptoms Neck pain, hot around op area. Clicking and tinnitus has to remove the hearing aid connector (sorry not sure of the technical name) after a few days the pain goes away but soon returns when she starts using it again. So far she's just been prescribed an antidepressant that helps with the pain but they make her drowsy.... She's being told it's nerve damage but is really upset that this is how her life will be now. Anyone else suffered any suggestions?? Thanks in advance for reading.
