Hi, Let's start then . I googled for information and came across this wonderful resource of information. I have some healthissues going on which are under control by now (thyroïd, heart, depression and ocd). And since years I have tinnitus in my both ears. I was also diagnosed with Ménière disease in january 2013 after some violent onset's of vertigo. I went by myself to the ENT-specialist since I knew it had nothing to do with my neck (like my housedoctor first thought). My neck is quite tensed though, for which I do soft exercises to keep it souple. I also follow taï-chi for nine years and I can't recommend it high enough. I am 40 years, female by the way... Since about 8 days I suddenly developed something 'strange'. I came back from the taï-chi class on saturday and suddenly my right ear started to whistle when I hear (harder) noises, sounds, voices, even my own voice produces whistling in my ear. Flushing the toilet (pardon). Closing a closet, closing a cardoor. Listening to music. It's truly a nightmare. Sometimes I do feel depressed with it... I went to my ENT, he did some investigations. I had an MRI and a CT-Scan in 2013 which was completely clear. He thinks it might be an infection of my inner ear. So he gave me Celestone 1 mg, in the morning, which I take now for 5 days (after three days I might notice a change, which didn't). No change. I must say that before I got the sudden onset of intolerance to sounds, whistling on sounds, my right ear was sometimes feeling full (like swimming under water) and sometimes whistled very hard. I have the Ménière in my left ear (btw). When the pills don't work I will get myself a hearing device, since my ability to hear is slowly fading away (especially left, 'my sweet Ménière ear') and I would love to have something that masks my sometimes violent tinnitus. It will be a relief... I am still doubting if it is 'reactive tinnitus' or 'hyperacusis'. If someone can explain me the difference please feel free to do so . Thanks! My ENT speaks of Hyperacusis, but the whistling on sounds makes me doubt... I have some apps on my Iphone which helps me. I have one playing right now while typing this story on the forum. Here they are: Tinnitus therapy lite from Sound Oasis (the best in my opinion, has a paid version as well but untill now I am doing it with the 'lite' version), Tinnitus from Phonak and one to let others hear what you're going through: Tinnitus from Appfanz (onemob). I live in Belgium. Thanks for this forum!
