Estrogen and tinnitus

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen and tinnitus


Avatar n tn She has only one ovary (with a cyst on it) and it is still producing estrogen. Her estrogen level is elevated at 142. She has had this problem several times in the past 20 years and it has mysteriously gone away. This time it appears worse and has lasted over 6 months. She has visited a Gynecologist and was prescribed with hormonal cream. The problem again is that she could not take anything without the strong buzzing in her head. Even MRI and hospital tests causes this effect.
6970651 tn?1386604470 Has anyone out there been diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and also had tinnitus? I have had tinnitus for 9 years and have not ever been able to find out why. Just recently I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease. I knew I had a mildly low thyroid for 9 years, but never connected the two AND my new NP was the first one to ever test for the TPO antibody. Your responses will really help me.
Avatar m tn But after ruling those out with help from my friends who heard nothing either in or outside of my house, I did some online research and found out that there IS a link between hypothyroidism and tinnitus AND the kind of medication used. I have been on Levothyroxin for 5 years and have never had a problem with it. So I cold-turkeyed and the ringing continued. Yesterday I started on Armour and the ringing dropped by about half in the first 24 hours.
Avatar m tn Have your visited the American Tinnitus Association website? There are numerous resources and tinnitus therapies presented and discussed. I would recommend that you use them as a resource.

Avatar f tn Also last year the left side of my face went numb as I was doing dishes so I went straight to ER they checked me out did an MRI and told me I had a silent stroke at some point and that all was good now and sent me home. I feel like all my hormones are wrecked and can not get any help.
Avatar n tn I am a 40 year old woman with chronic tonsillitis, tonsilliths, and sinusitus since I was young. 2-3 times a year, I get throat infections (which have included strep A, Strep C, and HIB infections). I still have my tonsills. I have had recurrent muscle tension headaches and migraines for the past 20 yrs. I had a hysterectomy/ovary removal in January. Went for 9 months without HRT due to endometriosis. Recently started HRT.
Avatar f tn I went to a new doctor who is both an MD and a naturopath, he prescribed thyroid replacement, estrogen, progesterone, and some adrenal support herbs. I can't wait to watch myself improve. Good luck and peace to everyone.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn 96. I went and had more blood work done monday and still have not received a call from my doctor. I am just nervous and feel bad. I was just talking with guys at work and they never heard of men having thyroid problems, and then I check on line and it is rare. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any men who have thyroid problems? And if my 16.96 TSH is something to be concerned about. THANKS!
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
Avatar n tn I also have hypothryoid so they think that there is a link to that and estrogen Talk to your doctor and have a blood test done for thyroid. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I am ok driving on normal, inner city roads, its just on the major roads i seem to get this. I have had tinnitus for 6 months, and only just seen the dr about it who has booked me some hearing tests. Ive also been getting slight twitching above my right temple, the same side where i have the tinnitus. Im not experiencing headaches, but feeling some kind of pressure there. I'm worried it could be something really bad and thinking i should go back to the drs? I get so panicky about driving now.
9648 tn?1290094807 I'm fortunate to have an excellent endo and plan to do follow ups--perhaps more frequently--during this recovery period because, although I'm on a study and they won't be leaving me high and dry--this isn't their forte. Their forte is getting the treatment data in to the sponsor and taking care of the patient during that process. The other problem with having the follow up by a hepatologist is that the problems people talk about post tx (fatigue, brain fog, achy joints, thyroid, etc.
329994 tn?1301666848 I went back to my gyn today and basically, what he said was, that I am still producing estrogen (from my symptoms) so he thinks my cysts will resolve and my adenomyosis will go away. He can't explain the bloating, the fullness, the urinary urgency, the constipation or the shortness of breath - sheesh! He wanted to put me on daily progesterone to counterbalance the estrogen. I did tell him no to that, because I was so depressed when I was on it before and it did nothing.
Avatar n tn One of my biggest ongoing problems, both before tx and after gaining the SVR has been persistent parotid swelling, TMJ jaw pain, neck pain, and now, nerve related pain radiating into the head, face, and shoulders and arms. Sometimes the salivary ducts in my cheeks become tender and hot, as if salivary stones have formed, and I can taste a bitter fluid in my mouth. I still get tongue and cheek sores as well.
Avatar n tn I am also in the middle of trying to get a diagnosis or relief from symptoms - mild constant headache, tinnitus, internal vibrations on falling asleep and waking, pain in legs, neck and shoulers, pins and needles in feet and lower legs.
Avatar f tn this also causes many other symptoms of pain and anxiety, nervous system, heart, bones, muscles, just about every system in the body runs on calcium, if that is out of whack, it makes you hurt really bad with many symptoms. Look at hypercalciema and hypocalcemia, also look at the cause, thyroid and parathyroid glands. Go www.parathyroid.
Avatar dr m tn In many cases, taking a good history and asking some pointed questions can solve a medical problem without resorting to medications. For example, I saw a man in his late 30’s who came to see me with 3 days of left ear sound distortion and reverberation with mild fullness. He had no other problems, including hearing loss. His exam was completely normal.
Avatar n tn i have been suffering from debilatating allergies/sinus probs, fatigue, and dizziness for about a year now. i do have allergies to mold, dust, milk products, and corn products. my allergy doc says my symptoms are all from allergies, but i have been trying everything 2 avoid the allergens, been getting allergy shots, tried numerous allergy medications, with no help from anything! does anyone else experience this type of thing? i seriously feel like i am getting so depressed.
Avatar f tn And nothing seems to help. I've tried aspri - doesn't work. I try massaging my breast and shoulders and that seems to help a tiny bit. Usually the pain is very dull...but one night I woke up in excruciating pain for about 10 seconds, then it went back to being dull. I'm 24, and I am being treated for Anxiety/Panic Disorder. My Psychiatrist does not think it's related. Does ANYONE have ANY ideas about what could be going on with me?!?!?!
Avatar f tn After taking tylenol 3 to deal with the pain, my last neruologist suspected it had been a mild case of Miller Fisher Syndrom/bickerstaff encephalitis but the time for a spinal tap had long passed and would cause more harm than good and said at the rate my muscular weakness was that I should be completely recovered in about 6 months, but no other medications should be added into my cocktail of issues as it could just worsen them and inhibit my recovery. That was in October of last year.
Avatar f tn I had some of those same symptoms especially tinnitus and low grade fevers and many other symptoms as well. If your level is in pg/mL then 17 is well within the post-menopausal range indicating you aren't absorbing it which would imply that your symptoms are from the loss of your ovaries and not the estradiol itself. I am also on estradiol tablets but I don't take mine orally. I either insert them vaginally or let them dissolve between my cheek and gum (transbuccal).
Avatar n tn Hi, I've had tinnitus continuous for 4 years, and burning skin pain that started on my face and upper arms and now is also on my legs. I have flare ups that last for days, weeks or even longer. They come on suddenly and leave suddenly. This time my legs also felt wobbly, with the left one being worse than the right one. Skin looks normal, no rash or warmth. Cold air makes it feel much worse. I get cold sores occasionally and take valtrex as needed. I'm otherwise very healthy, 47y/o female.
Avatar f tn About a year ago I woke up with pulsatile tinnitus in both ears and a pounding heart. Then it progressed to body tingles then numbness in my feet, intermittent and worse in the right. I feel a lot of head pressure. I have seen 3 ent's, only one took me seriously and has ordered a head MRI later this month and I am also have an echocardiogram next week. I also feel quite ill most of the time and sometime feel clumsy and stumbly. I am so afraid as parkinsons runs in our family.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar n tn At any exertion, sweat would pour from his head and the rest of his body and he would continue sweating for a long time afterwards. Heartburn and acid reflux, especially at night. Flushing in the face, without apparent reason. His doctor diagnosed him with depression. Against his grain, he agreed to try different anti-depressants but things kept getting worse. Apart from all of the other symptoms, he started having some episodes that his doctor described as panic attacks.
Avatar n tn I'm only 24 and I've read the signs and symptoms and I have alot of them. My MD briefly mentioned that it sounded like I was having early menopause but I didn't take her seriously. I'm only 24 there has to be some other issue. She put me on the pill for birth control and I haven't been to her since. I'd like to know what you all think. I just started the pill but it's low estrogen so it didn't help with any symptoms yet. I want to have more estrogen right?? I'm at a loss here.

Avatar f tn Hi. I'm 27 years old and was diagnosed with low estrogen 4 years ago. Well my problem is that I noticed today when having a bath that just inside the entrance to my vagina feels really dry and wrinkly. The best way I can describe it is like a shriveled up prune. This is not normal for me and I was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me what could cause this. Obviously I fully intend to see my GP practice nurse about this problem.
