I have a dear friend who some time ago had surgery for a leg fracture with an epidural. Shortly afterwards this loud noise started in her head ...whooshing and dinging was her description - it's constant and vibrates in her head like a very loud pulse. Heart and blood pressure ok apparently.
At first they thought it was severe tinnitus and she has had many MRI scans of the head/neck and all is clear. She has visited ENT specialists and Neurologists and all seems well. The latest suggestion has been to have angioplasty to check the arteries in the head.... she is waiting for the appointment.
My friend had her thyroid zapped in her twenties some 40 years ago - and I have often discussed with her the value of having her thyroid levels checked...if only to eliminate it. She is hoping it was one of the many blood tests done and that soon her GP will have the results and that she will obtain a copy.
Poor girl is desperate after months of suffering and going down blind alleys. Just wondered if anyone had a similar experience they could share - and any information would be most welcome.
Thank you for reading.....
