I know I made a thread about my tinnitus slowly getting better, and it totally was, until I stopped taking the sudafed and mucinex. Now i feel like lately its back to where it was. I truly dont understand how my tinnitus came to be and i will never rest until i find out. It happened so lightly but got worse so fast (came so lightly and then hard, within the span of 2 months). It also started in the right (no hearing loss) and tinnitus then spread to the left. AND i have conductive hearing loss in my left as well. I just dont get it. I did listen to loud music, did go to rock concerts, but I hadn't done any of that for months before the tinnitus came. Also, i dont seem to have sensorineural hearing loss (no damage to hairs from what i suspect, just conductive). The fact that my ears were incredibly itchy and they were again yesterday wont let me give up that there may be something more here. I suffer from sebborhea dermatitis and am currently having a bad flare up. It has spread to my face and so I wondered if theres a possibility it could affect ones ear. I dont really think so, however, since my ear doesnt feel flaky-itchy. It feels itchy on the insides. Itching my ear canal does bring it relief for 0.02 seconds, but i know the itchiness stems from deeper within since scratching the sides of the roof of my mouth with my tongue helps relieve some of the itch. Any ideas?
