      Does anyone else experience twitching or pressure behind their eye when having a tinnitus spike?

      I have tinnitus in left ear only and my left eye gets these sensations.

      I had sinus surgery 2 weeks ago. I'm wondering if this is sinus related and possibly still healing.

      My surgery did not involve Eustachian tube so I was not expecting much improvement with the tinnitus.

      An update to the above.

      I finally went to a neurologist because my tinnitus seems to ramp up when I feel pressure on my head, behind my left eye (my tinnitus side) and I have dull headaches. My tinnitus is not pulsating. It is constant tea kettle.

      Whenever I took Prednisone in the past, my tinnitus would disappear but come back worse during my taper.

      I believe there is an inflammation factor that makes it worse sometimes.

      I am set to get a lumbar puncture since my neurologist found indications of intracranial hypertension on my MRI. Hoping that if the puncture sample comes back positive that there may be meds that could reduce pressure and reduce my tinnitus. Here is hoping.

      Anyone else have any experience with this?
