I'm due to see my endocrinologist this Friday but before I go I want to make sure I'm not going to get laughed out of the consulting room and labelled a crazy person. Over the past few weeks my tinnitus (which I've had for a number of years by the way) has suddenly increased in volume and I've developed a strange symptom when I move my eyes and head, it even happens when I walk. Basically, I get a strange a whooshing sound which seems to happen when I move my head and eyes. It's sounds like a quick blast of tinnitus which also seems to upset my balance when walking. I'm hoping for a final diagnosis very soon but all of my symptoms point towards Hypothyroidism, which tinnitus is one of them. Does anyone else get this weird on/off sound of tinnitus?
