Question: I have a whooshing sound in my left ear. It's not constant but only when I turn my neck to the right ( max) or I bend forward ( then very short) while I have a muscle tension (CSM)..
it disappear when I go back to normal neck posture. When I wake up in the morning my ear ( sometimes ) feels heavy and like there is some pressure in it.
It stops when I squeeze my scm muscle or I touch infront of bottom of the ear. Like the picture shown. ( sure in the positions mentioned above) and it turns back when release squeezing or touching.
It's now there for months and sometimes it's worse sometimes is better ( worse when tired )
I have been to ENT and provided hearing test and looked. so he said I have some hearing loss
because of loud voices. And my right eat is worse than the left with tennitus.. He said the hearing loss might be the reason. But I don't believe it's that because it stops when I squeeze that muscle or touch that point.
I also have been to physiotherapy
and he said I have some muscle spasm on my left side more than the right one. But tinnitus
is still there.
I went to Jaw surgeon and he made pictures of my jaw but nothing showed as a reason for tinnitus.
My physiotherapist told me that it might be due to an irritation of the hearing nerve
because of my last dental visit to put me a crone.
Is this the reason of my tinnitus you think ? I know there can be many other scary reasons but I mean why it does stop in cases I mentioned?
On Monday I have a consult at a neurologist
as per my gp information and he scared me to dead as my gp was talking about possible neurinoma
while my cousin who is an ETN told me that I can't be this due to the modulating the tinnitus which happens when I turn or touch the points mentioned .
Can u give me your opinion please ? I'm a little scared
