About a month ago, I started hearing a sound in

About a month ago, I started hearing a sound in my ear like a rapid pulse. My ear was tender (not anymore), but still hear it almost every day. At the same time, my lips became swollen and red, feeling like it was blistered from sun (have not been in sun). They peeled, but have continued to be red, dry and peel over and over. I normally have problems with fluid in hand and legs, but try to watch amount of intake.

I m 22, a yr ago I had an ekg everything was fine, I didn t experience abnormal heartbeat. 4-5 months ago I start getting rapid heartbeat, usually when I wake up from my sleep, I would feel it thumping I get weak. I was at my new doctors office, they gave me an ekg she said my heart was beating extremely fast (I was very relaxed). They checked my blood pressure 3 times, it was high changes dramatically within minutes.. She prescribed me metotrolol 25mg, but I notice that I was actually experiencing rapid heartbeat more often the thumping was stronger than before I started the medication, I really can almost hear it.. I m either just sitting around doing completely nothing it would suddenly just go for about 2minutes just slow down within minutes it would happen again.. I was on metotrolol for 3wks and I just stopped 2days ago because it felt like it made it worse. I will find another doctor to go to, but does anyone have an idea what is causing it? I m changing doctors because they re not really professional so I don t feel that I can trust them with my health. I am chinese my doc is american chinese, yet her staffs aren t so I got a phone one time where they asked me to go by to pick up my blood test THING , which she really meant blood test report, also I did not understand anything she had said. So just to be safe, I rather try a different doctor. I ve only seen her once so it should be fine. Thanks for the info!

Approximately 1 year ago I had surgery for an Esteem hearing implant in my right ear. When the device was first activated my hearing sounded good but as I turned up the volume as directed over the next few weeks the sounds became unbearable and I started turning the device off whenever I was around any loud noises. At my follow up visit several months later it was determined I had scar tissue as a result of the surgery and they would get back with me at a later date after deciding what course of action to take. In the interim, my hearing in that ear became progressively more sensitive to sounds, so I continued turning it down or off. It was another several months before surgery was eventually scheduled during which it was determined to remove the implant and replace it with a titanium Kraus K- Helix Prosthetic device. At my follow up visit the doctor said everything was fine and he would not need to see me again even though I was complaining of pressure inside my ear. Then, approximately a week after seeing him (mid October) I developed ringing in my right ear which progressed to extreme pressure in both ears and also severe hypersensitivity to noises in my right ear. When I called the doctor who performed the surgery the only advice I received was to get a hearing aid . I next saw a local ENT (Nov 2 & Nov 27) who prescribed an antibiotic which helped for awhile but all the symptoms rapidly returned after finishing with them. He also prescribed ambian, Valium and mucinex along with a CAT scan (which didn t show anything). His hearing test showed I have extremely poor hearing but didn t help with a diagnosis. I m scheduled to see him again in 3 months. At the present time my symptoms are getting worse, I m a nervous wreck and I don t know where to turn. I ve accepted the fact there s no cure for tinnitus , but this extreme hypersensitivity to sounds is something that has made my life unbearable. I would much rather have total deafness in this ear than what I m experiencing now. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
