I am new to this forum and would like to share my experience to see if anybody has had anything similar.
Before the tinnitus and hyperacusis arrived I was having severe impacted wisdom tooth pain on my lower right part of my mouth. After taking penicillin and a bunch of ibuprofen for a week the pain had gone away.
I took various x-rays at different locations since my local dentist was closed and I was just trying to find answers as soon as possible.
One day after eating an extremely hot spicy dish of ramen I experienced some hearing loss on my left ear. Now, I didn't think much of it and went to sleep. This was on June 22nd of this year. June 23rd, a Saturday morning I woke up with an extremely loud seashell swooshing sound on my left ear. I freaked out and after 9 hours of it not going away I went to the ER. I was prescribed prednisone which is a steroid for 5 days 60mg daily. Within 8 - 10 days of hell, the swooshing sound had gone away. However, within the 4th day I was experiencing pressure and sensitivity on my right ear and then Hyperacusis came into play. That swooshing sound also changed into a variety of different rings and it ended up been a low ringing sound on my left ear.
At times, within the 12th day or so I would try and find that sound but it felt as if the ringing completely went away. The only thing bothering me was the H at the moment. Fast forward to July 16th, I woke up last week Monday morning with ringing in both ears and H. The H was just as bad as I initially got it and I didn't have ringing in both ears until now.
I'm scheduled to hopefully extract my two lower impacted wisdom teeth out this following Wednesday and I hope that shows some relief but so far I've gone to the ER and ENT specialist and haven't gotten a straight forward answer.
My nose is congested and I was told to do nasal rinse and spray and within two days of doing that my T and H came into play which was July 16th.
I'm not sure what's causing the T and H as I still have to go to a neurologists and need some more blood work but has anybody had T and H from impacted wisdom teeth problems?
I can provide more information if anyone wants to know about it.
