I have a pressure behind my forehead and ringing in my ears.

Customer Question

I have a pressure behind my forehead and ringing in my ears. At times I am dizzy or light headed. Sometimes slightly nauseated. I have had an MRI and a c-scan both negative.
This has been going on for 3 months. Some days worse than others but always there. Is this something that can be treated by a Neurologist?

I would break down some of these symptoms ...

1) nausea -- GI problems are most common but many things can cause nausea ...stomach irritation such as ulcer or gastritis may be considered avoid GI irritants ( alcohol, coffee, caffeine, anti-inflammatory medicines such as much aspirin or Aleve or Advil...Tylenol is ok--- hot spicy or acidic foods-- tomato products, onions peppers, citrus fruits .../// check with your doctor and perhaps have check for H.pylori (= common bacteria to cause ulcers ) -- if nausea is GI related then acid reducing medicine may help such as Prilosec or Nexium for example ( these 2 are over the counter ) other causes of nausea are possible and may be checked by your doctor as well...chronic urinary tract infection or liver inflammation are a couple of possible causes

2) light headed type dizziness -- have your blood pressure checked ...low blood pressure may lead to light headed type symptom. The nausea may tie in to this as nausea may cause drop in blood pressure and feeling light headed as well....

3) ringing in ears most commonly is due to inner ear trouble and often associated with high frequency hearing loss...See ENT specialist for that problem. Sometimes a medicine such as Valium may be helpful to make ringing sensation less intense

4) Headaches -- presute behind forehead sounds consstent with tension type headache which is most common..sinus congestion also a possible cause there...the ENT would be ideal to check sinuses as well as tinnitus problem
