Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.
So have you seen an ENT specialist lately?
Any problem with hearing?
OK. The fluttering of the ears known as tinnitus is mostly the result of "frayed nerves" associated with aging. However, some other reasons are wax build up, ear fluid build up due to infections.
Thanks. I do not think that the fluttering is related to the capping.
Some things can make tinnitus worse, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, excess salt and caffeine consumption, loud noises, and smoking. Some attribute the cause, at least in part, to key vitamin or mineral deficiencies, including magnesium and B vitamins (especially associated with nerve health), so make sure your diet is good.
Yes, that may cause hearing problems due to nerve injury, which you do not have.
There is no definite reason for that but stress t it though it is commonly seen during stress.
Sorry, I meant that stress and anxiety tends to exacerbate tinnitus symptoms although there is no scientific basis for that.
Just like stress can cause many other symptoms like heart pounding, breathlessness, tiredness and so on.
For the tinnitus, you should see an ENT specialist who can guide you for requisite treatment.
Do you have difficulty / pain while chewing in that area?
You can take a drug known as flunarizine from your GP as it is a prescription drug.
No, flunarizine is prescribed for tinnitus.
Anti anxiety medicines like alprazolam helps to quieten tinnitus during stress.
Yes, I have read about paxil.
Yes, tinnitus can sometimes cause tinnitus.
Sorry, paxil can sometimes cause tinnitus.
This can be treated with flunarizine too.
You can also use a "masking device" which is often prescribed for tinnitus.
It can be used as a small machine behind the ear.
Alprazolam is a mild anti anxiety medicine that should be taken before bed time.
"Masking device"or masker looks like a hearing aid device that can be worn behind the ear.
It might disturb your sleep.
I think I have provided you all possible ways of dealing with the tinnitus!!
hope you have a good day ahead!
