Re: question aboutTinnitus and thyroid
I suspect there is a relationship. I began having trouble with my thyroid being inflammed in 1986 (although was not dx'd until 2003), and in 1994 began having tinnitus. I never experienced tinnitus before that, the ringing has never let up since 1994, and just this past year I was told by an ENT that it was caused by my throid problems (I have Hashi's, with very high antibodies). He felt I should seriously consider getting my thryoid out, so I got a couple of other opinions, and am now scheduled for a total thyroidectomy August 21st.
I PRAY that it is the attack on my thryoid that is causing my tinnitus because that might mean that TT may solve the problem.
On the other hand, I have chronic nasal congestion, and have heard that may be the cause, too.
Your post was encouraging to me, because I have not heard too many docs say there is a connection between the two. Please keep us posted!
