Hi, I am a male in my early 20's. I ve had tinnitus since 2009, it started out of the blue. I had multiple hearing tests and they all came back normal and back in '09 I had an MRI done which didn't show any abnormalities. Over time I honestly got used to the ringing, which was louder in my right ear. It was always there but it was not that loud and I could easily ignore it with the slightest background noise. I could easily go to the library and study. I was able to sleep and go on with my life. The reason because I created this account is because I don't know what else to do now. Here's why: It all started sometime in october 2013. I noticed my right ear would feel like there was some pressure issue and I experienced muffled hearing. The clogged feeling then transitioned to both ears and at times it would be so bad I would feel like I was fainting and the whole room were spinning. Shortly after I started having pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear which lasted about 3 weeks and is now an occasional occurrence. I decided to consult an ENT. I got a resident ENT and he asked me to do a hearing test, which didn't show any hearing loss( that was in december 2013). A few days after that consultation and in the middle of my final exams everything turned to pure horror for me… I remember studying for ma stats final for hours without a break and sitting at my desk with my head bend down. then when I sat upright, I noticed my T was much louder but went back to normal when I bend my head again or moved my head to the left or to the right. i didn't think that was the begining of hell. That night I went to bed and noticed my T was loud but I thought it was because of the extreme stress and that it will go away once I was done with my exams. The next day in the night before my next final the T was even louder and on the following morning, I woke up and I instantly had the urge to throw up. My head was hurting, my neck was sore and I never felt that lightheaded/dizzy in my entire life. The symptoms didn't go away over the day and persisted for at least 4 days. and since then my T has been so loud it is unbearable. I can't function. TV wont mask the noise, even wind blowing in my ear doesn't mask the noise. I cannot concentrate during lectures, I cannot relax.. I can t do anything… This has roughly been the past month of my life..with no sign of getting better. I did a CT scan ordered by my GP and he said my sinuses are blocked (one side) and one the other side I have a polyp, so now I m stuck with nasal spray (avamys) but I knew that before.. He said I should consult a chiropractor since my T got even louder with neck movements. I went to the chiropractor twice and I don t see any improvement, maybe even got worse… Now I m here, tomorrow is my 23rd birthday and I am really hopeless… Additional info: -T gets louder with head movements to the left or right. -T gets louder with jaw movements , especially when I grind my teeth. -No idea whatsoever WHY it got so much louder. I know it s not psychological or stress because it s been over 4 weeks now. -Nothing makes the noise better. -I stopped eating meat october 1st -is gingko biloba, b12 supplement, zinc, tmj specialist, any help? Please if you have any advice, experienced the same to some extend, maybe a solution let me know! I am desperate..
