      Tinnitus Since:
      May 2016
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I am a 50 year old male with no allergies. Since the death of my father in May.. i have been experiencing what I assume is Eustachian tube dysfunction. I would go to sleep and then I would experience extreme air pressure difference in my R ear. When It get really bad i would get tinnitus.

      I am able to pop my ears, but there is no relief. I am experience fullness of the ear. It feels like when you go to a concert or when you go on a airplane. I could hear myself talking or hear an echo. Outside noise is amplified and it would make me hear drumming sound in my ear.

      -no dizziness

      -no headaches

      -no pain

      It worse when I go to sleep and lay down. I would hear like drumming sound in my ear and I would know it would be coming.

      I have tried

      Zyrtec, neomycin ear drops, amoxicillin at first.

      Ginkgo biloba, Vit E, warm compression on the ear, sleep on the L ear.

      1st ENT Doctor did:

      -took ear wax out

      -place me on Flonase Nasal Spray 50 mcg

      -did hearing test


      2nd ENT doctor:

      -took ear wax

      -did hearing text

      -short dose of prednisone

      -suggest that I have Meniere's Disease

      i saw him a few times.

      Recently he recommend the following:

      -recommend MRI

      -recommend that i see a neurotology Neurotology is a branch of clinical medicine which studies and treats neurological disorders of the ear.

      -recommend blood work which I did

      -gave me second round of prednisone which I am taking now.

      -thinking of giving me diuretic

      I can't live like there a cure? I get a few days of relief and it comes back again. I want to have a normal life again. Has anyone experience anything like this. I know that my dad death trigger this ..but when will it stop? Why me?
