What causes tinnitus along with dizziness and blurred vision?

Hi! I have this disturbing in my ear that sounds like it was clogged and at the same time it was palpitating, while I am dizzy and having a blurry sight. So i went to a physician and gave me Gupisone, prednisolone 5 mg and advised me to take 4 tablets 3 times a day after each meal. I would like to ask if the medicine is valid according to my symptom s description including the advised dosage. I was not able to ask this question to the physician because I can t do it well in Arabic. Can you help me please with this concern. thank you

Hi,

Tinnitus is a common issue and most causes are benign and temporary. However, it this lasts for a longer period then it should be evaluated.

Tinnitus can occur due to causes like chronic ear infection, perforated eardrum, Eustachian tube dysfunction, Meniere's disease, TMJ disorders, Acoustic Neuroma etc.

Tinnitus is not a disease in itself but it is a symptom that indicates that there is some underlying illness. I would suggest you consult an Otolaryngologist and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations like Audiometry, X-ray MRI can help in diagnosis and treatment can be done accordingly.

In case if ringing does not resolve then you can be advised medicines like Tricyclic Anti-depressant like Amitryptiline, anti-anxiety medication like Alprazolam, as well as Multivitamin supplements can be advised.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
