Question- for the past 2 days my T has been low enough to sleep in a quiet room without it bugging me or noticing it. Though yesterday I had a lot of sweets amongst them- chocolate marble like cake. Now I read about sugar in the blood stream and also that the consumption of flour and sugar that it infact can cause/worsen ringing in the ears. Around 3 am today I woke with such a difference in the ringing, I started to cry because i really thought it was getting better, you guys it was sooo low i was like awesome 2-3 more days and you should be gone. I went downstairs and drank a large tall glass of lemonade water (no sugar) to clear out whatever I ate that must've caused it and went back to sleep with a fan on. Please note before this I have had NO SWEETS since the 13th of Feb. And now this morning is has lowered in volume I want to say to what it use to be but not quite. Just almost. I'm starting to think that I will no longer be able to have certain things. I am worried. its been 12 days since I got my ear syringed and 11 days since the application of the drops, 7 days since I stopped using them. Two more days and it will have been two weeks since the syringing was done to fix an impacted ear wax causing T in one ear. So my question is, what's the average time people give for this two weeks right? (sigh) Its going to stay isn't it, I'm so depressed. Update- I went to the ENT yesterday he took a look into my ears, said they look excellent from the outside, he gave me an audio test and a test that checks the pressure in my ears. He said both results are fine but I lost one point in my right ear at 6000hz but not at 8000hz so it must've been my error at not pressing the button when i heard the beep. But he scheduled me for another one next week still. He prescribed Deflazacort tablets (Calcort) 30mg isn't that dose a bit high? I'm suppose to take it for 5 days one in the morning and one at night-and then stop. But I read that you slowly have to ease your way out of it gradually lowering the dosage. I keep googling and I keep reading 15mg or even 6mg. I am afraid I have still yet to buy it. Apparently its an oral steroid, Im already about two weeks in isn't steroids a bit late for me? I thought I read that the window time is around 48-72 hours after T onset. I am afraid to take it guys, have any of you taken this med before? How did it affect you if so. Found all this on this pill. "corticoid Therapy for Tinnitus Patients Spain, 2002 R esearchers C. Herraiz et al. studied the clinical response to the steroids methyl-prednisolone or deflazacort on a group of 60 tinnitus patients. Tinnitus loudness decreased in more than 45% of the patients after treatment. Hearing increase was demonstrated in 32.6% of the cases. Autoimmune inner ear disease, endolymphatic hydrops, and sudden deafness were the most responsive diseases. The steroids’ effect as an immune suppressor, anti-inflammatory, or vasodilator may explain the improvement. Thirtythree percent of the patients maintained the tinnitus improvement three months after treatment." I don't believe that article up top its a 2002 article. This is what's put me on edge- look at all those side-effects. http://factmed.com/study-DEFLAZACORT-causing-TINNITUS.php P.S Whats funny is that my doctor not once mentioned that it would go away, I said I read that for some people its permanent he didn't say anything -____- just nodded acknowledging what I was saying.
