quote:Originally posted by DonnahThere are a number of us in the forum with tinnitis, so why don't we look for some sort of commonality? John, I have suspected some sort of low grade infection too. My ears, particularly the right one (which is most affected by the tinnitis) are frequently itchy and the itch feels like it is both in front of and behind my eardrum. Sometimes it feels like it's itchy in the middle of my head (very annoying, no scratching there). Since rhinoplasty my sinuses have been constantly irritated and I've had two abcessed teeth (both teeth with roots that intrude into my sinus cavity).
I've had tinnitus (ringing in the ears) since I was a teenager. I'm not sure how it developed, I never listened to headphones very loud or very often..maybe from one too many blows to the head during football and wrestling. I learned quickly to tune it out, however. It's been over 10 years since I first got it.But lately, it's been getting worse, sometimes the ringing is so loud it hurts. Normal sound always overrides the ringing, even when it's really bad, so it doesn't interfere with my hearing, just with my sanity. (especially when I'm trying to sleep!)Is there a way to treat tinnitus or do I just need to readjust to the new level of volume?Dear,I too have been suffering from the same, it all started with an ear infection, initially the sound was too much to bear but now after two weeks it is very much negligible. As am from India my parents suggested me one home remedy, since I do not know from which place you are I am not sure if that is available at your place also.You have to fry and eat a Goats brain along with an egg before dinner and do not take anything else. The rest of the head of the Goat has to be prepared as a soup and drunk before going to sleep, drink this soup for 4 days. If you can do this and see if the Tinnitus diminishes. I hope you do know that how to prepare the soup.PRASAD DAMODARANronaldo81@rediffmail.comThis message brought to you by The Council of People Who Are Sick of Seeing More People
I don't know about the origin, but mine sometimes sounds like a piece of tin being rubbed with a file.Hey! maybe that's why I'm so sensitive to certain scraping sounds (we had another thread on that). The scraping sounds cause interference/dissonance with my internal sounds and freak out some of my brain cells.----John
I have been "googling" tinnitus since I got it 4 weeks ago after having wisdom teeth removed. The oral surgeon has wiped his hands and passed me onto a ENT specialist which I will be seeing in a few weeks time. I am researching like mad before then to understand what tinnitus is about.
Certain dental procedures such as difficult tooth extractions and ultrasonic cleaning can cause hearing damage via bone conduction of loud sounds directly to the ear. Wearing ear plugs will not guard against bone conduction.
