      It'll probably be easier for me to deal with my tinnitus when the left side of my face (the left ear has a 10dB loss at 4kHz) stops feeling totally numb and dead. Anyone deal with this sensation for a long time, and have it go away?

      Did anything help you?

      Tinnitus Since:
      a few years ago
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I've been experiencing a symptom like this for a long time, except on the right side of my face. A very strange sensation of tension and numbness on my right cheek and temple area. It disappeared (or at least became imperceptible) for about a year and a half while I was taking ativan, but returned after a severe withdrawal reaction when I attempted to taper too quickly. Reinstating did not make it go away again, but did reduce it somewhat. I suspect it will return again as I do a slow substitution taper.

      My right eyelid now twitches frequently, and this has been going on for about 6 months straight.

      I wish I had an answer. This has historically been one of my most annoying persistent symptoms.
