Question: I have this loud noise in my head that sounds like locust. It started a month ago. I was having sinus trouble at first. My ears would fill like there filling up the stop. My face started hurting and I treated it like a sinus infection and the pain went away.
The noise is loud enough I can't ignore it also I continue to have a mild headache and mild dizziness but together it makes me pretty worthless.

As below:

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. The noise is known as Tinnitus.

2. Get your ears and hearing checked for treatable causes of tinnitus. For example, ear wax and middle ear fluid due to sinusitis are treatable causes.

3. Tinnitus usually is common with age related hearing loss (Presbyacusis).

4. I have noticed patients who have increased Tinnitus when they are stressed, have fluctuations of blood pressure, low hemoglobin, low blood sugar levels and so on. I must emphasize that in a vast majority of patients of tinnitus, the cause is never found. However there are further treatment options depending on the type of tinnitus.

5. Gingko biloba, multi-vitamins and anti-oxidants are commonly used treatments to help reduce Tinnitus. Transtympanic steroids, HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), Caroverine and use of special hearing aids are some more potential treatments.

6. Since you are being evaluated for a recurrence of an Insulinoma, advise your physicians to rule out a MEN (Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia) Syndrome that may be responsible for your varied symptoms.

If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.

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

In November I was diagnosed with Sudden Sensory Neural Hearing Loss in my L ear, which included dizziness and bizarre tinnitis symptoms. I had oral steroid treamtent with no success. I had a procedure to place steroids into the inner ear with significant improvement in hearing, though still impaired. this was followed by continued ear pressure, terrible tinnitis, off and on headaches and fatigue. i was treated with antibiotics for 20 days and things improved, but ear fullness and lesser tinnitis persisted, with intermittent headaches and fatigue now returning. Hearing loss is still annoying, I can't use a phone on my L side and can't hear speech in a room with more than one person in it. Will this ever improve? Is there anything further that can be done?
