      Hi all,

      I just have become a member. And I cannot believe my eyes that you guys are so dedicated and active!!

      I am saying this because I have multiplicity of conditions. I had a mild Meniere's which always reacted well to corticosteroids and forgot about me for 3 years. In my last injection something went wrong. First while in injection, I started hearing the load roar of the tinnitus (Imagine I actually heard the tinnitus starting!), instantly my higher frequencies crashed. I told the doc: "something is going wrong!"... After days hyperacusis started, fullness crept into and then dizziness, then eye blurring and then eye pain... It is unimaginable what inner ear is capable of!!!! I suspected it was a gentamicin administered instead of a corticosteroid... After various tests I am still undecided (some tests say yeah some no and if there is anybody interested we can talk) and I am going to the alleged top doctor just for him to tell me what I got!

      Trying to keep calm with all the difficulties my ear has provided me!

      If there is any chance they accidentally gave you Gentamicin (oh God...), would they ever admit to it?

      Please see if you can get a confirmation. If you had Gentamicin, see if you can you get on oral steroids right away or either way, turmeric, NAC, any and all free radical scavengers you can throw at it.

      Oh no. I really hope you get better... did they confirm it was gentamycin? I hope you are better now @KansasCute.
