After having and being treated for a viral/ bacterial infection of throat, ears and chest, now have tinnitus of the left ear. Doctor feels I was over medicated and had an allergic reaction to one of the drugs prescribed. Was seen in urgent care 3 times before able to see primary doctor. Given Zythromax, Augmentin, Valtrex, and prednisone. Also ear drops and told to take over the counter medicine Mucinex. My tinnitus is a buzzing sound, like wet electrical high wires. It is with me daily for the most part. Some days more loud than others. It only changes after sleeping. I , so far, have no trouble falling asleep but if I wake in the night after about 4-5 hours then it will keep me awake. I have tried to keep a log of activities, meds, foods etc., that effect it but nothing stands out. On the low volume days I find I am very tired and my ear hurts, although the doctor says all is good.
