Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Tennis elbow release can decrease the pain around your elbow but is not likely to help with the tinnitus you are having.
Tinnitus for last 10 years is indicative of a middle ear disease. There may be a damage to the nerve endings responsible for hearing due to aging.
You need a thorough evaluation by an ENT specialist as there are various causes for these symptoms and they can be ruled out only after a Physical Examination. Once the cause is confirmed, you will be treated accordingly.
Till then avoid caffeine and smoking.
You can also add Zinc and Ginkgo Biloba supplements to your diet for relief.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

How long is the healing process after a myringoplasty. I had a myringoplasty on April 3, 2013 to block a very small perforation that was unsuccessful and left me with tinnitus that I didn't have before and a 30% ear loss. I've got reoperated January 28, this time the whole to block was large and skins had grown under the eardrum. The doctor will evaluate my hearing in 3 weeks. But what's bother me the most are the constant tinnitus I had after the first surgery and, at the present time have still have changing also. - Is there still a chance for these changing tinnitus to go? What are the statistics about it? - After how much time a tympanoplasty can be declared successful? Very challenging and stressful time of my life since June 2013... and it seems to continue. Thank you for your answer. Francoise

I believe that I have ear wax buildup in my ear that has closed the canal. This happened from using a quetip to clean my ears after swimming. I have been doing home treatment (using hydrogen peroxide / water mix for a few days, then debrox for 4 days) and it has worked a little bit, opened up and was able to hear again pretty clearly for a day or two, but then it closed again and opens up about 10% of the day. I don t have the money to go see a doctor and feel this is minor and can be fixed. No pain, no symptoms of infection or problems, just lack of hearing and tinnitus (which goes away when it opens up). So my question is if there is anything else I can try or has it been so long I should absolutely see a doctor?

Hi, Since past 7 months I am experiencing Tinnitus in my right ear with partial hearing loss. Though I have consulted many doctors & taken advised medication for the same (no cancer detected in Brain MRI, Audiometry Tests show almost 60% hearing loss, Complemina Retard continued for almost 3 months), yet the problem still persists. I do not feel any nausea / headache / dizzy / anything else. I wanted to know if this is curable at all and if so then what are kinds of treatments options available ? Thanks in advance. Regards, Nitin
