Hi every 1 hope your all well.
Had a horrendous weekend been dizzy and falling all over
My daughter frog marched me to A&E this morning
Realy wasnt intrested seeing i have had so many tests done for tinnitius
ended up getting a Dr from the maxillofacial unit to come and see me
As i am under them with tmjd
My daughter explained what was going on with tinnitus, dizzyness falling and loss of hearing
He then started to explain well yes i would get all these symptons and more seeing i have
anterior misalignment or displacement of the articular disk above the condyle
crepitus in both temporomandibular joints
I sat there with my mouth open no 1 has ever told me this all i was told was we will wash yr jaw out
as you have arthritius.
He then went on to say we will put you on betahistines I said been on them since october
Oh we will put you on amityptiline been on them 5 years for nerve end pain
Oh well we will make an appointment for re education for your tinnitus been there done that
But he said you have to go there before audiology appointment i said i got 1 them 19th
Well he then replied there isnt anything else i can do for you good day
He did say that doing arthrocentesis (washing jaw out) could make my tinnitus worse
and all the other symptons if it did he would botox the masseter muscles i asked if this would stop
the tinnitus he said No.
So looks like i have finally found out what has caused the tinnitus and the hearing loss lets just hope
Audiology can help me.
