It started in mid October, when I was withdrawing from a low dose of Xanax after a short term use. The Dr gave me this to treat tricyclic compound poisoning. I only took that sh.t for 16 days at low dose at the initial titration period before I developed serious neuromuscular side effects which had to be treated with Xanax, don't know why the psy Dr gave me that in the first place, I only had mild depression and very occasional insomnia back then, but she gave me major tranquilizer, f..k, when I realize what these drugs had done to my brain it was too late. H preceded the development of T by a few days, and dizzyness/unsteady feet/the feeling of drunk state preceded the development of H by a few days, don't know whether they are related though saw ENT and a top Otoneurologist, the Otoneurologist is also the director of a local tinnitus rTMS clinical trial program, he refused to let me try rTMS since my case is recent onset, normal audiogram, no damage in hearing at normal frequency range and high frequency range What an irony, a drug which is frequently prescribed to tinnitus sufferers can itself cause tinnitus (same for DBS), maybe T researchers should take a serious look at it now it is 1.5 months, it never stops, 24 7, changing volume, tone, pattern, reacts to body posture, jaw/head movement, sound stimulus, gravity, not sensitive to anxiety status and sleep condition, extremely complicated pattern, with electric shock like sensation, with weird eardrum clicking/vibration, I can even see it and smell it, weird enough, starting to lose hope that it will go Heard that benzo withdrawal induced T is somehow related to excessive firing of sensory cell due to overexcited (upregulated) glutamate pathway and downregulation of GABAA receptors, maybe an NMDA antagonist like AM-101 can also help? Now I cannot lead a normal life again, as a face-to-face conversation and talking on telephone can make my head explode (T extremely sensitive to external sound), birds singing too. Computer fan, wind, A/C outlet, all of them cause T to "burn" my head. Life is such a misery. I lose interest in anything, I even refuse to eat. I am willing to try whatever experimental treatment before it turns chronic, if none of them work then I may consider the final solution.
