      Hi Guys,

      My name is Kenan. Ironically I am a DJ and have quite often been around loud music, however I don't believe this relates to my tinnitus starting as it began at a time when I had a long period off.

      Back in November last year, following numerous Sinus Infections and issues with dizziness when I got one, I got a sinus infection that wouldn't go away with my normal Ammoxicilin antibiotics which I was usually prescribed. I was prescribed a different antibiotic a bit stronger and the morning after on the way to work, things have never been quite the same again.

      I suddenly felt totally out of it, like I was in a dream or drunk.. All the symptoms led to what I can see as 'Depersonalization or Derealization' which seemed a bit weird and random. Along with that I constantly feel dizzy every day, sometimes to the point where it's like im on a boat or sinking into the ground.. I get head pressure from my temples to my sinuses, Ive found my dreams have become more vivid and intense and above all..

      THE TINNITUS!

      The loud ringing and buzzing in my ears.. I went on a plane recently and put an ear plug in and oh my god it wa so loud it was almost unbearable.. its like a buzzing in my left ear and a ringing in my other..

      I've had ear tests, CT Scan of sinuses, MRI of sinus and brain.. All clear

      I feel at a loss as I don't feel the person I used to be, I could handle some head pressure or dreams but it's the dizziness and ear ringing that get me.. its 24/7 it never goes away.. I also feel so energyless all the time and unmotivated i feel like getting up is a struggle..

      :( x
