How all of this began for me is strange.. They say tinnitus is a symptom of a underlying "cause." I flew fromVirginia to New Mexico about 2 weeks ago..that's when all my ear issues began. A day after flying I noticed I had a pulse feeling in my right ear, felt like my ear drum was moving or something, headed to the hospital and was told I had "inflammation" and was prescribed antibiotic and for some reason the hospital dr didn't fax the prescription to the on base pharmacy ( husband in the military.) so I went to a ENT who told me that this should go away in a few weeks, months etc. Still the pulse feeling freaked me out went back to the hospital Friday and told I had fluid in my ear and to take a decongestant. Than the ringing began Monday and I freaked..back to the hospital! And told I had Eustachian tube dysfunction because my ears feel cloggy and I can hear a water rushing sound whenever I open my mouth. I was prescribed a steroid nasal spray and it didn't work.. Back to the ENT had a hearing test..told my hearing was perfect and that this will go away that he thinks my ears are having a hard time equalizing the pressure. Well...here it is 7 days later and still ringing..has driving me nuts, major panic attacks, anxiety, crying,depression I've been sitting in bed for a week..my husband has been trying to calm me and tell me this is going to go away. Everyone keeps telling me this will go away.. I even went to a different hospital a 4th time and was told to relax that this is normal and will go away. I have never been the one to have ear infections, listen to loud music, haven't been near anything "loud" not even a concert... My right ear still gets that pulse dance feeling and my tinnitus rings change from low to high pitch... I'm really scared im 20 years old and don't understand what's happening.. This is my cell number 253-305-4176 if anyone can give me some advice and help me cope..or write back.
