Hi everyone. This feels weird but I have been lurking here for a few weeks now and... figured I should come and say hello. I don't really know what to say right now other than I am currently sat here listening to this high pitched screaming in my head wondering what to do. It started for absolutely no reason at the beginning of the month and has not stopped since. I was just sat listening to some quiet classical music and writing an essay for college when I felt a shifting sensation in my head and heard a weird alarm noise. I thought it was coming from outside but after turning off my music to go to bed I realised it was in my ear. I have seen one dr who said I had ETD and gave me a nasal spray. I also took allergy meds and have been using steam to try to make it better but the noise has not settled down. I went to my dr today and he said my ears are looking fine and could not really give me any explanation for the noise. He also said an ENT would likely not be able to help me and said he would refer me but there was not much point. I have been having jaw pain and finding it hard to eat, tinnitus (sounds like high pitched static screaming) which is stopping me from sleeping and painful reactions in my ears from loud noises. Does anyone know why this is happening to me? Will this go away? What can I do? I am going to stop taking my migraine meds (amitriptyline) in the hopes that it will stop the noise and am going to try some anti-biotics as I have pain deep inside my ears so fingers crossed? I have also been given anti-inflammatory meds for my jaw. I keep bouncing between feeling like I can deal with this and feeling like i'm going to do something stupid (especially when on my own at night). I am only 24 and it is making getting through college so difficult. How can a person live like this long term? All of this is just too much. Sorry if this is a bit of a ramble. I know no one can really help me but... I just felt like I needed to reach out.
