Hello, I'm new here and this is the first time I have reached out to the IBD community since being diagnosed in Jan 16 with Crohns at the age of 51. This was closely followed by a rare EIM of auto immune inner ear disease AIED which has resulted in hearing loss in one ear and deafening 24/7 tinnitus in both ears. I had to give up my job last year as an academic. My life has become the 4 walls of my home and because of all my symptoms rarely feel well or able to go out. I started on Humira last week and am hoping for a miracle as life is quite honestly unbearable. Any advice, experiences gratefully received.
