      I am 60 and in good health, no meds.

      My tinnitus has been around for a year or more, but has become very "load" in the last month or so.

      Best description I can find -
      Sounds like a dentist's drill.
      Soft in the morning when I wake up, like the drill is in the next room, but progressively loader, the pitch is just lower.
      Sometimes I can "feel" the tinnitus in my head, best described as grinding of small pebbles or wet send, not painful, but very noticeable.
      Load sounds makes it worse.
      Then it can drop in volume later in the day.
      If I get absorbed in doing something(concentrate), I become unaware of the tinnitus, which is good.
      Other symptoms that are coming and going are
      headaches (not migraine),
      eyesight sometimes better than others,
      short term memory loss (can be terrible),
      downgraded eye-hand co-ordination,
      typing goes for a loop,
      unsteady on my feat.
      Body aches - especially the legs.

      I have not taken any medication (except the odd headache tablet), and is not keen to start.
      If anybody has similar symptoms, and can advise what helped -would be much appreciated.
      If a diagnosis - other than the obvious - is known, kindly advise.

      Thanks in advance,

      CG

      Get younger.

      I also like what you say "60 and in good health", it's looks like you're a wreck :)

      Then what are complaining about?
      As for your problems, they seem so diverse (legs, eyes, ears, brain, reflexes) - go see a doctor my friend.
      This forum may be useful but it doesn't perform MRIs.

      I agree. Go and see a doctor and request an MRI and/or other tests they request. Good luck and let us know how you go.

      Thanks for the replies.
      The tinnitus is bad enough to seek advice.
      The other symptoms I can live with, was mentioned for completeness, in case it fits a known pattern.
      I have been to a doctor -
      Bloods came back normal.
      CT scan - no abnormalities detected.
      \An extra "feature" of the tinnitus is e feeling of electrical currents flowing in my brain - coinciding with hearing load noises.

      Doctor mentioned -

      Meniere's
      MdDS (Debarquement Syndrome)
      BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)

      Thanks.
