Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
Last time on 1 feb I asked a question regarding your this complaint.
Can you please tell me for how long are you having these symptoms.
Any history of frequent nasal infections or throat infections?
Any loud noise exposure or trauma to the ear?
Any hearing loss?
What medicines have you been taking so far?
Please tell me all the information so that I can suggest you better.
Did you get any investigations done like an audiometry?
Thanks and regards

Brief Answer:
Tinnitus

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information
It is probably a acoustic trauma from firing. Get an audiometry done to see the amount of hearing loss if any and what frequencies has been affected till now.
Start taking tablet cinnarizine twice daily.
Also take vitamin b12 1500 micrograms once daily
These medicines I prescribed are available only on prescription.
Avoid excessive XXXXXXX usage or ear phones.
Start with the medicines and get the required investigations done.
Thanks and regards

I woke up feeling really fuzzy, buzzing in my ears. I ve had a virus of some kind. I had an MRI of the brain a month ago, which was okay, an ENG test from an ENT , who released me and said to visit a neurologist . I have had a cough, but is not coming from my chest. I also had a chest x-ray , which was normal. I do not have a fever, but it s hard to describe the way I feel. I feel like every nerve in my body is screaming out, but with no pain.
