      Hello... I've had T for 7 months now.... And I was doing pretty good... I was thinking of writing my success story soon then boom! My good ear just went numb and this loud ringin like an hour ago... It's my second day on amoxicillin Flonase and Zyrtec for some fluid I still have behind my ear drum on right ear.. The one with the hearing loss and T. Now today right after I bit on a Oreo cookie this happened... What could it be ... Would it settle???

      Hi Rina,
      Im sure it will settle down.
      I would try a mucous linctus and steam inhalation with a bowl of hot water and towel to give your tubes a good clean out and help any mucous and fluid hanging around causing problems.
      Try not to worry as your tinnitus will spike more....lots of love glynis

      Hi Rina,

      that same experience has happened to me many times.

      don't worry. your spike will settle when your infection clears.

      in the meantime, just do whatever you find helps your cns calm down...

      if you need to mask, then do that because this will help reduce your anxiety about your t..

      let us know how you are going

      • : Just came back from the ER... I have a big was ball pushing against my ear drum.. They put some drops to soften it and tried to wash it out but no success... They sent me home with some drops with antibiotics for infection and I will start prednisone tomorrow for the inflammation... Ringing went down a little.. Hope everything will get better.. Seeing the ent next week... So according to the doctor at the ER I have fluid in right ear infection in both ears.. Left ear has a wax blockage which is hard as a rock and inflammation... Ear drum on left ear is red and irritated!!! Hopefully the drops will work wonders with the wax and the other medication will help
        As well

      Hi Rina,
      You will be fine on them but make you full of energy and hungry and keep you Wake .
      Reducing down is fine but they can make you emotional and after your last dose .
      60mg is a high dose ....lots of love glynis

      Hi, Rina,

      I took Prednisone when my tinnitus first worsened, five years ago. It did not affect my tinnitus one way or the other, and I had no side effects from it. Good luck, and I hope it helps your inflammation. That's what is supposed to be helpful for, anyway!

      Sadly, I've never taken them, so I can't give advice about it...However, I'm sure you'll be fine.

      Good luck!
