      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hi Everyone,
      I was recently referred to a Neurotologist because of vertigo, which has been diagnosed as BPPV...after a hearing test it was discovered that I have some hearing loss in one ear and have to have an MRI scan which is a big worry. I now have tinnitus (at least 2 different sounds) in the same ear..yet I didn't have it before the hearing can this happen??
      I also have ringing in the other ear too, but only hear it when I put my head backwards...I don't understand why this happens and hope someone will be able to explain this.

      Thank you in advance

      I'm not sure why a hearing test could cause it. I think you should call the Neurotologist.

      Have you tried this vertigo exercise for BBPV. It works like a charm for me a few weeks back when I woke up after dozing to a spinning world. LOL. One exercise later, most of the symptoms of vertigo gone. After that one more exercise I was back to normal again and no more symptoms up to now. This is from a lady MD with the University of Colorado and she used this exercise to heal her own vertigo. Try it and see if it works for you.
