My name is Cassie. I'm a healthy 24 year old woman who is happily married to the love of my life. I enjoy being outside (even in the Wisconsin winters?), playing with my dog, and spending time with my family. It's been three months since I've felt normal. It all started with fluid in my ear a few days between Halloween. I was kept up all night with a constant thudding. My husband took me to urgent care and they told me to just take sudafed and flonase. A week went by and my thudding didn't stop and I was having terrible pressure in my left ear. I went back to the doctor and I had a ear infection and sinus infection. They put me on augmentin. I finished those and went back in because I still wasn't feeling well. They diagnosed me with Eustachian tube dysfunction (something I've always had)and told me to keep taking flonase and sudafed, insisting it would go away. By the time I got am ent referral my blood pressure was way high (thanks to the sudafed). She said I looked congested and had me do a ct scan, told me to stop sudafed but put me on bactrim and had me stop the sudafed, even though my sinuses didn't look swollen and everything looked normal. My ears still ring and have the thudding three months later. Is it worth it to go back to the ent i saw before? I recently went to an oral surgeon because my TMJ has been flaring up really bad again. When I was younger they wanted to do bite correction surgery. He put me on a muscle relaxer. Could my tinnitus be tmj related? So tired of not getting a straight forward answer.
