    Ear and throat problems

    About 3 yrs ago I developed a very sore burning in my throat and it was very distressing I went to many drs and they did not know what was wrong I had had a reflux op but apparently that was fine at the time of my throat problem
    the throat suddenly got better after a year or so perhaps more .
    Now I have developed what they call Tinnitus, and no one can help I had an op but to no avail on my ear.
    Now a week or so ago my throat problem is back and I can also feel acid again. They turned my stomach in the acid op.etc.
    I was getting pains in my chest also a few weeks ago and my GP said he thought it was acid but the specialist said a couple of years ago that the op was still working

    Is it possible that the throat and ears are linked and part of the same problem or would one cause the other
    In between times i had a nose op with a specialist it was cosmetic would it have affected my Ear. It was after the throat problems which are back again now
    Is it possible that nerve ends in the body and nose ear and throat are damaged

    At one time I went to a specialist for my throat problem and he looked and said he thought that nerve ends in the area of the throat etc were damaged
    He also at that time looked in my ears and said I must have had a problem since young he thought I had had a bad ear when young and no one had looked after it. He said I could not hear high pitched sounds. However I must stress at that time it was my throat giving the problems I ws not aware of any problem with my ear then

    any thoughts I am going mad with the nosie in my ear and also now my throat problem is back and no one is able to help

    Hoping you have some ideas of help or suggestions
    I tried tinnitus tablets etc but nothing helped, but seems strange that I had a throat problem for a long time it stopped then now a couple of yers later I have a ear problem with ringing cracking etc in my ear and now my throat starts up again
    Also acid is bothering me and I am taking medication again for it like I did before the reflux acid operation
    I live in South africa but will go anywere in the world if someone can definitely help me

    Re: Ear and throat problems

    I believe that there is no cure for Tinnitis.I have had it for a few decades,and it has never subsided.I looked at a drawing of the ear apparatus in the space between your ears.It seems to have both hearing and sense of balance interconnected.I
    believe that there is fear to intervene in this inner ear problem.If you lose your sense of balance,you will be like a straw man ,,as in The Wizard Of Oz.There seems to be tubing going from this area to the nose area,so it is a complicated area to work on,
    I believe. Best of luck....Bill
