Just trying to figure out if there is a connection between thyroid & tinnitus. I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem 2 yrs ago and prescribed 50mcg Levothyroxine , about 4 months later the tinnitus started. Doctor said it was just a coincidence . I have been tested to see what could have caused tinnitus and was told i have a collapsed ear drum but I have always had this. So why now. It is without doubt one of the worst conditions and all you get told is you need to learn how to deal with it. Thanks for that docs. It seems a lot of you out there also have had similar experiences. My question is why is someone not doing something about this awful condition.
