Re: Tinnitus - ear ringing - Post Op ACDF
Hi Paradiddle, Just found your post on ringing in the ears. I haven't had any operations so far, but do have severe degenerative disc disease in the neck area. When I first began having problems, about two years ago, I noticed I was having a strange buzzing sound throughout my head. I also have a numb, squeezing sensation in the lower skull area, along with headaches at times. The buzzing sensation is always there, and is very annoying. I had started taking blood pressure pills around that same time, and was blaming the buzzing sensation on the pills. I went off them for a few months, and the buzzing was still there. So, therefore, I am pretty sure it is all from my neck problems. Even though you have had surgery, I am wondering if maybe the ear ringing is from "things" being disturbed during the surgery.....muscles, nerves, etc.? Maybe it will go away as time goes on; when things settle down a bit in your body. I hope so!
Just wanted to tell you my experience. Hope your doing well otherwise. Take care!
