Re: Ear Ringing any relief??

I would think the first thing you should have told your friend would be to see a doctor!

Re: Ear Ringing any relief??

I have tried capsules and liquid. The capsules were not cheap. And I thought a complete waste of money. I took them faithfully for over a month. And nothing changed.  I hope she has different results.

I visited two different ENT Doctors. And two different Audiologists. 

 

Still have ringing in my ears. And I was told that I would have to learn to live with it. I have had the ringing in my ears for about 10 years.

Re: Ear Ringing any relief??

Could be anything from earwax to medication.  My mother has it, and nothing helped her but she is 82 and takes a multitude of prescriptions.   

 

I went to a Tinnitus specialist for another issue with my ears, and asked what he recommended ... his advice is to play instrumental music or "white noise," which can be downloaded, through earbuds to "relieve" the sound of the whistling -- this will not cure, but helps with the aggravation of the noise in one's ears.   And as previous poster said, see a doctor (an ENT specialist would be a wise choice).

Re: Ear Ringing any relief??

I have it but think it's related to my peripheral neuropathy. Recently, I had a very bad thumping feeling in my temple/ear area and questioned my doctor. She explained it and said it was something about the fluid in my ear. It only happened to the one ear and lasted about a week when laying on that side. 

 

For the last six months, I've been taking the capsules but haven't noticed any of it going away.

I have it and saw a specialist and was told to learn to live with it.   I wouldn't waste money on any pills or anything that claims to be a fix.  Currently, there aren't any.

A friend had it accompanied by dizziness...the chiropractor was able to make it all stop.We have an excellent one in our area who is so good that he is flown to work at elite sporting events.

@bajsf

Do you know if there is diabetes involved?

This might be a good video to watch explaining the connection:

no I haven't - I read an article recently that was saying that they now think the ringing starts in the brain. Or that was the author's opinion.
