Brief Answer:
Could be a minor disease of cranial nerves.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. The most likely cause of your symptoms could be mild damage of cranial nerves- vestibulo-cochlear and trigeminal nerves.

This could be related to alcohol or due to an unrelated cause such as a viral infection.

You should get better in 4-6 weeks.

Please continue with current vitamin supplements.

If you do not get better, an MRI scan of brain may be done.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,

Another question is why the tinnitus is stronger during the night and will it go away in 4 -6 weeks?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Sudhir Kumar 2 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Tinnitus is usually stronger at night.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Several neurological symptoms, such as tinnitus and nerve pain, are stronger at nights. This is related to release of chemicals from nerves, which are more at nights.

Why some days i feel better and some days I feel worse, some days tinnitus is very strong?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Sudhir Kumar 3 hours later
Brief Answer:
Neurological symptoms may fluctuate.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

It is common for neurological symptoms to fluctuate (wax or wane) on a particular day or over a period of time. This is because it depends on several factors such as sleep, stress, temperature, food intake and so on.

Doctor, why from time to time my nose bleeds only from right side?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Sudhir Kumar 7 hours later
Brief Answer:
Mostly a local problem in the nose.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Nose bleeding is most often due to local tissue injury in the nose. Avoid nose picking, and also get a nose examination done by ENT, if not done.
