Hi all. 3 years into my T journey and up until 3 weeks ago I was fine, habituated and living a happy life with husband and 2 young kids.
3 weeks ago I had a huge spike which I took prednisolone and the H went almost away and the T was fine (since retraining my brain in the first instance I haven’t had an issue with the T, just H when I have a spike).
Was feeling loads better after a week or so but then out of the blue I started getting really anxious (I think in response to the ‘plugged’ ear) and then it just spiralled and now my T is worse and I also can’t stop crying. I feel so so down in the dumps and am scared for my future. I keep trying to tell myself this will pass and I’ll get better but I just keep freaking out that my ear is plugged! The side effects of anxiety / depression have also kicked in. Fuzzy foggy head, loss of cognitive function and a banging headache.
I’m on 20mg citalopram (have been for years) and have increased my dose as of Sat night.
I am at a loss as what to do.....
I only have 1 ear as I am totally deaf in my right ear (since I was a baby).
Also I’ve had a hearing test which was in normal range except one frequency which was only slightly out of normal range.
Help. What can I do????
