What causes noise in the ear post a whiplash injury?

I was in a car accident 1 year ago with whiplash injuries and also swooshing sounds in left ear. The neck stuff appears to be better but the noise I hear in my ear happens currently when I change positions or move my head or jaw one way. The ENT did ct and MRI and mra and found nothing wrong. I did find out I have a floppy eardrum. Why do I have this pulsatile tinnitus? Could it be coming from my neck still? I read about diet soda? Can the caffeine or aspartame cause this?

Hello,

Pulsatile tinnitus may be seen in middle ear effusion in which own artery pulsations is magnified. Other possibilities like infection or trauma induced or drug-induced etc.

Avoid carbonated beverages and alcohol. Use water vapour inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use tablet Cognifast twice a day for five days.

If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I had whiplash 2 months ago from a car accident. About a week ago, I started having a buzzing sensation that comes every minute or so, which also makes me dizzy. No noise in my ears or anything, just sensation. Is this normal and treatable? History: I also have severe anxiety & depression. I m 21 yrs old female. I am not a hypochondriac, so it s not exaggerate to say that my symptoms are pretty severe.

I was recently in a car accident. I was diagnosed with whiplash at the time. A couple weeks after the accident the headaches just would not go away. I went back to urgent care and they told me I had post concussion syndrome. While at urgent care my blood pressure was 175/100. I have never had problems with my blood pressure before. Inhave been checking it at home since and itnis staying around 140/91 - 150/101. Can this be caused by the accident? Also should I go back to the urgent care for the high blood pressure?

Ok, I m 23 and this is really getting me down. Here is my list of problems, it s driving me mad. I have had all of these on and off for months now and haven t really had much help from the doctors. - sciatic nerve pain in my right leg - sciatic type pain that travels upward through my abdomen - hot flushes in my left foot - numbness in both thumbs - stabbing pain in some joints - a resting heart rate sometimes of 120 - heart palpitations - sensation of cold water dripping on my legs while I m walking - muscle twitches - tinnitus - dizziness - other sensations in my face or limbs that just don t quite feel right (tingling, pain, numbness, hot or cold) I also went to A&E a few months back because of a very severe pain in my abdomen. I had blood tests (which revealed a higher than usual white cell count, and blood and proteins in my urine) but a normal liver and kidney function. I also had an ultrasound done of my aorta etc which showed nothing really despite the fact the doctor heard a whooshing sound in my abdomen with his stethoscope.

Hello, I have been experiencing dizziness upon waking. I find this very odd. I will open my eyes, still horizontal and get dizzy. It will last a minute or two. I will get out of bed, And it may continue or may not. I have stood up and side stepped, still dizzy. Or have been fine. This has started over the past week. I do have tinnitus, and have had vertigo in the past. I have had my hearing and eyes checked recently; testing was normal. I am wondering if all this is associated with menopause, or if the veritigo has returned with a new twist. I am a 51 year old female. I would appreciated any input. I have used serc in the past for vertigo which helped the nauseous feelings. But am at a loss as to why I m getting dizzy before rising in the morning. Any input would be appreciated.
