      Hello people.

      My tinnitus started in the middle of last January.
      When I was in my room.
      I felt like the world was spinning for a minute, then I lied on my bed and then the dizziness went away.

      And for the first time I felt tinnitus in my ears and it has lasted until now.

      I went to the doctor and he gave me that medicine Betaserc.

      The dizziness is gone but the tinnitus is still with me.

      It spikes at night, but I don’t hear it at all during the day.

      Until now I am ok my balance is good and I don’t feel dizzy.

      Is there a cure for this??
      And could it be Ménière's disease??
      Or something else??

      We don't know, but something is wrong with your cochlear impairing hearing and balance.

      See an otologist (ear doctor) to see what's wrong. Crossing fingers it's not Meniere's.

      I went to an otologist.
      He told me make some blood tests and an Xray on my neck.
      The results were good and after that he said to get used to it. And I get used it.
      But I suffer when I sleep on my right side, it spikes all the night.

      I just want ask you. Is it worth a shot to go to another doctor or just forget about it?

      Because I spend all the time on the internet reading about it and I can not stop thinking about it.

      But the good thing is I got new friends who has tinnitus like me.

      Peripheral vascular disorders are the most common. They fall into five categories: 1 Meniere's disease - an inner ear fluid disorder that causes vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus and fullness in the ear. 2 Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) - a brief, intense sensation of vertigo that occurs because of a specific positional change of the head. 3 Labyrinthitis - an infection or inflammation of the inner ear causing dizziness and loss of balance. 4 Vestibular neuronitis - a viral infection of the vestibular nerve. 5 Perilymph fistula - a leakage of inner ear fluid to the middle ear.

      A viral infection may have been cause. Vestibular peripheral vascular input and nerve can cause spiking at night because the rotation of the head causes the fluid to flow, which in turn causes displacement of the top portion of the hair cells.

      You should heal in time as blood tests and neck X Ray are fine. You have not really displayed discomfort for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo and none for Labyrinthitis, Perilymph Fistula or neck muscle/facial strain which is good.

      You beat me to it, very good description. This article is interesting as it does seem to tie BPPV into Tinnitus, in sone cases. http://www.tinnitusjournal.com/articles/benign-paroxysmal-positional-vertigo-and-tinnitus.pdf
