I'm new to this forum,
My name is carol I'm 45 years old and have been suffering with tinnitus for around 8 years, I didn't mention it to my GP until recently as its got a lot worse I was referred to an audiologist nothing abnormal was found.
However I had a really bad cold just before Christmas and my tinnitus when through the roof I wasn't able to mask it at all and certain noises have now started to hurt my ears, also I've started to have dizzy spells which are horrible they only last for a few seconds but I get very disorientated and distressed,
I recently went back to my GP and mentioned that my tinnitus had worsened I feel very isolated as I feel I have no support and don't know where to turn my GP simply said to contact BTA. I don't know what to do anymore
