Brief Answer:
Due to age related degenerative changes

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. You have developed tinnuitus. Sensorineural degenerative changes, particularly due to senile degenerative processes, can give rise to such presentations as you have described. The organ of hearing lies in our inner ear (vestibulocochlear apparatus) and is also associated with the sense of balance. Vestibulocochlear stabilizing agents like cinnarizine or betahistine might be needed. You need to see an ENT specialist and discuss with him whether they would be right for you. I do not think that seeing a neurologist (brain doctor) would help. Nevertheless, you are free to see one.

An audiometry needs to be done to understand the exact nature of the problem. You need to understand that body parts age and your machineries are ageing too. Such degenerative changes are hard to fix, let alone through 'natural processes'. You have developed it in 79 years. You may take another 79 years for it to subside naturally. I do not suppose that you have that much time. Pardon me if I have stated bluntly.

Let me know if I could help further.

I have had dizziness for three weeks. I can't go out alone for fearing of falling. My symptoms came on quickly the dizziness is not spinning but as if the floor is moving up and down and my lower legs feel like jelly and I actually fall forward. This happens all day. I'm ok when lying down, My doctor first prescribed betahistine Dihydrochloride which had no effect and has now prescribed cinnarizine tablets but these appear to be for Meniere's disease although I don't have nausea or buzzing in ears. I am desperate for this to go away. I have also developed a painful boil and wonder if this is a side effect of the tablets. Thanks

I take 16 mg of betahistine 3x daily for Ménière s disease . I have started getting localized headaches on my left side of my head... Coughing , sneezing and bending over without keeping my head up make it worse. Just worried it could be something worse than the meds.
