Angry Tinnitus and Post Nasal Drip

Just logged to your site for first time, thank you. I am in my late 60's and have suffered from loud hissing in the ears (and some hearing loss) now for some years and always believed it to be tinnitus. I was told by GP that tinnitus was due to the micro tiny sensing fibres in the inner ear having 'bent over" from noise damage and shorted out electrically, therefore causing the hissing problem, and that it was untreatable.
Having heard and accepted that theory I have put up with it for many years and it drives me crazy at times! So much so that I often take to bed early and eventually sleep which seems to reduce the noise a bit when I awake.
If this is PND, and maybe the fluid behind the ears moves when lying down, or if this fluid could be affecting the sensing fibres, this could make sense.
My dental hygenist introduced me to the possibilty of Post Nasal Drip which I was not previously aware (the symptons of which I do have) I am now off to see ENT specialist so will report further if any improvements. Wouldn't it be nice to get some releif from this debilitating sympton?

Re: Tinnitus and Post Nasal Drip

If your PND is, like mine, related to sinusitus then fluid could be causing that hissing. That's what the current theory for me is, at least. PND and fluid seem to come from the same problem, which is a general lack of drainage in the whole nasal system. Hopefully your ENT will be helpful.
