I'm a relative newbie here and you can easily find out what's been going on with me with a quickie search and so won't go into the whole deal. The Readers Digest version is that I've had T since February 2006. I habituated over the course of a few years (yeah, years), and up until last December I was pretty OK with it. On the old 1-10 scale I had many 1-4 days, but I was generally OK if I remembered the basics about staying away from loud noise, the short list of ototoxic drugs, and all of the usual stuff. Fast forward to December of last year. Huge spike. Turns out to be permanent (it's still here so I'm being honest with myself instead of fantasizing that it's going to fade ... not happening). Anyhow, here's the wrinkle. At about the same time that I had the new spike with new sounds, increased volume and all of that, I started getting headaches. Like the everyday kind of headache. Everyday for months. I saw my ENT and primary doc and then an otologist. No help on the ear front. My primary doc insisted that I see a good neurologist, which I did. After taking a detailed history and performing an exam, he said I have New Daily Persistent Headache syndrome (NDPH). Here's info if you want to see it. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3444222/ Thus my poll! Remember that my poll is talking only about treating the non-stop headaches, not T or H or anything like that. I started the poll b/c I'm confused by the fact that almost all of the drugs that the neurologist will try to use to prevent my daily headaches have some history of doing damage to hearing or aggravating tinnitus ... both of which I just don't need, if you know what I mean! They are drugs like amitriptyline, nortriptyline, other low dose anti-depressants, anti-convulsants, gabapentin, topiramate, opioids, etc, etc. So, what would you do? If you had headaches ranging from 3 to 8 out of a maximum of 10 on the pain scale every single day for months plus raging T, would you try to solve for the headaches even though you might make your already bad T or hearing loss worse? Or would you just try to tough out the headaches? Thanks.
