My ENT appointment wasn't what I had expected. A month or so ago I started with T, I had called a local ENT group in a panic over it. I got in with a neuro ear Doc who basically told me "you have T. Explained they don't know why it is or what the problem is in my case unless they took out my ear and examined it. Not alot they do for it and that isn't my specialty but we have someone you can talk to if you are depressed. "Are you depressed"? I thought you know what, I'm starting too, just from this conversation. He told me to see an ENT as I have frequent sinus infections. I mistakenly thought I'd have some answers or some suggestions as to what I was dealing with when I saw the ENT. That didnt happen. When I meet with my ENT I explained my sinus issues and then immediately mentioned the T, with a hope he'd say yeah we can talk about that. That didn't happen. Yes I need my sinuses checked out so I can prevent more problems but seriously, all he could say when I said the T was driving me crazy was," yeah, no one likes it." He even said you can take Advil for sinus pain/pressure...ah, that's how I got here doc. I don't want to take something that could do more damage. " Oh yeah, well, it may get a little louder while your taking it but it should subside when you stop." NO WORDS! I have learned more from this site and have more support from perfect strangers than I do from an ENT Doc. Anyone with T should get a mandatory consultation with a tinnitus expert. I am floored at how little they think of this condition. So unless I'm depressed or suicidal I'm on my own to figure this out? I'm not suicidal nor am I depressed thank goodness. But seriously is this all the info you got for me and any future T sufferers? I had a discussion with a women's health nurse practitioner that I see about my frustration and she offered to help if I didn't get offered any treatment with my ENT for T. She has a patient who found some relief (quieted) with some meds, they even submitted some of their data to some ENT' s and they were not interested. How can you ignore it if even 1 person finds some relief? I realize not everything works for everybody but like everyone out there you'd try anything and if it works for you it may work for others. Anyway sorry for the rant, just really frustrated.
