I have recently started suffering from Tinnitus in my right ear which came on about 3 weeks ago (previously I had a very bad flu and a viral cough for 2 months) . I was feeling really light headed and dizzy and alot of pressure in my ears. Doctor said I had a good build up of earwax in both ears and to clear this before they could do anything. So after 2 weeks of ear drops and using self help ear syringing I cleared the wax from my right ear and it stopped but almost immediately started in my left ear.
Eventually cleared my left ear but unfortunately the high pitch squeal has got worse and 3 weeks in no improvement. I continued to suffer from dizzy spells and really bad pressure in my left ear and sore neck with the high pitched squeal. I went back to the nurse and she said I had a little wax in my left ear and to continue with drops but no need to syringe. My right ear was beautifully clear.
Her response to tinnitus was that there was nothing for them to do.
So now not sure what to do, I said that I wanted an ENT referral or at least audio to rule out any other issues but they seem less than sympathetic. The dizziness comes in waves (makes me unbalanced or want to sit down but not sick) it coincides with higher pressure in my ear and neck.
Anyone had the same symptoms?
tks just really wanted to get this off my chest as I have been trying to ignore the T which I can do when busy, in the morning seems there is a massive pressure build up in my head/ears overnight and the T is much worse in the morning.
So just wanted to see if other people suffer from the same ..tks for reading.
