In Reply to: Please help me help my daughter posted by Paul on August 31, 2000 at 04:20:05:
Sorry to hear about your daughter..She's about the same age as me..I'm thirty two,two years ago I had the same dizzy attack and suddenly heard a banging in my right ear...This brought about anxiety and panic attacks..At first the doctor told me it was just worry and it would go in time...but it didnt go...in fact sometimes its worse..sometimes its better but it's there all the time....At the same time I feel a massive tension at the base of my skull and neck and chest (unfortunately)...This is all linked to tinnittus....I have now had to resign myself to the fact that it's never going to go away...
I try to keep myself busy and do things..espescially when its quiet..caffeine..cigarrettes..alcahol...tea..anything that raises blood pressure are strictly off limits now for me...
Excerscise helps me in that it releases feel good chemicals..a kind of natural anti-depressant..also you could try getting in touch with www.tinnitus.org for more info on how the brain perceives the sounds as a threat...subconciously....
I'm sorry I cant be any more help.
It may help if you told your daughter that she's not on her own and I suffer from the same symptoms every day..as I'm sure do thousands of other people..
