Tinnitus & allergies...or something
« on: August 24, 2014, 03:05:08 PM »
For the past several days I've had some mild nasal congestion, definitely not a full-blown cold, and my ears are roaring incessantly!! Most annoying. Can't hear correct pitches and it is a struggle to hear some people talk. I love music so much but my tunes don't sound like they're supposed to.


Did I say most annoying?


I broke down yesterday and started using my Nasonex and Allegra, hoping the symptoms are from allergies. Not much relief yet.


Anybody have some home remedies? I have no pain whatsoever and no dizziness so it isn't inner ear infection.

Lila,


Make sure you aren't near anything or eat anything that might trigger an allergic response such as someone mowing their lawn or cutting down weeds or lots of mold, such as near water, in a boat or even in cheese.


I've gotten relief by using Clear Sinus and Ear and Clear Tinnitus.  Both are homeopathic and herbal formulas with no side effects.  You can purchase these at health food stores and drug stores , but call ahead to make sure they carry it.  Online places carry it too.  iherb.com is just one of these places.  http://www.clearproductsinc.com for more information.


Take increasing amounts of Vitamin c every day until this clears up, starting at 500mg.

Thanks, Barbara!. Just ordered both on Amazon with 2 day delivery. Easier than going shopping. Probably cheaper too.

Have you tried using a netti pot? I have an old ceramic version but I think there are newer ones on the market now.

I got tinnitus a while back when I started taking a prescribed medication. Since I stopped taking it, the tinnitus stopped too.

I sometimes get tinnitus for 1-2 days when I am totally stressed out. I do not take medication - I try to reduce the stress. (I know it is not always easy. But saying "no" 1-2 times in situations where I habitually say yes, can help me.)

Tinnitus is an inner ear problem with potentially a million different origins.  The most common are allergies, infection and medications. And annoying doesn't begin to describe it! Oddly enough, decongestants can be the worst offenders.  I haven't been in a silent room for fifty years and even had to replace my phone system to stop answering 'my ears'.  Silly, but true.  The ringing in my ears was the same pitch as my phone and I had to get a different ring sound or go crazy. I hope you find a solution, it can be challenging to hit the right one.

So far not much relief--am almost to the point of asking for a referral to an ENT specialist. I've tried steam, neti pot, Nasonex, Allegra, popping. Little to no improvement. No doubt I have a eustachian tube dysfunction caused by something.


I am hoping for relief before the end of the month when we have symphony tickets. I want the sound to be glorious, not sounding like what I'm hearing these days, which isn't much.
