      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Diuretic Medication

      I discovered I had Tinnitus back in 11/2009. At first I didn't know what all that whooshing, ringing and pressure in my left ear and side of my head was all about or what it was if it had a name. After a lot of tests of my head, heart, ear and blood circulation, they told me it was Tinnitus and there was no treatment for it. I was never given any medication, therapy or anything for it.

      But fortunately for me it stopped all of a sudden after having my ears popped during a coast to coast flight. I had done some research on the internet and found out that calcium could be very helpful. It made sense to me since I had also being diagnosed with post osteoporosis and knowing that the smallest bone in the body is in the ear I started taking strong calcium pills. This along with the fact that I had stopped taking the diuretic medication Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg helped to stop it.

      I found out that the diuretic medication is what caused it for me, five years later I was given another kind of diuretic and the T came back. I stopped the meds and the T stopped. I asked my doctor when was it that she had prescribed the diuretics the first time and sure enough it coincided with the first T episodes. This is the reason I don't like taking pills, they fix something that might be ailing you but they also can cause other things to go bad.

      I don't wish this on anyone, it is terrible and I am sorry for all the sufferers out there. I truly hope that you find some relief and or a cure.
