Roaring tinnitus

Hi all I am new to these boards, first time posting, I have low frequency hearing loss and tinnitus in both ears of a high pitch but I also get a load roaring noise in both ears as well, this can diminish or even stop for a few seconds when I chew or talk, can anybody help me understand this.

My GP gave me betahistine hydrochloride to take for my lightheadedness and pain which I get in my ears also I get pains in my head.

How long before the betahistine kicks in.

This roaring noise is so loud.

Re: Roaring tinnitus

Hi. I'm 69, and have had jungle sounds (like those on old black and white Tarzan or Ramar of the Jungle movies), squawking, monkeys chattering, super-loud Shhhhhhhhhhh sounds, screaming macaws and parrots, and sounds of baby chicks peeping (cheeping)--all of this intermittently, most of my life. I only recently learned that those sounds, collectively, are called tinnitis. Until then, I thought everyone heard these same noises. I have learned, over time, that the following things help me: drink lots of water; eliminate sugar, carbonated beverages and alcohol; see a chiropractor every 4-6 weeks, or more frequently if I've taken a fall, been in a fender bender, or have a part of me that's going numb (legs, hands, etc.) I've learned that medication, especially antibiotics, increases the jungle noises to a breathtaking level, filling me with anxiety. I avoid them whenever it is possible to heal in another manner. In June, antiobiotics twice caused me to totally lose my hearing, although I've been increasingly hard of hearing since about age 5 (sensory neural loss, beginning with higher pitches, but now profoundly deaf), and have worn hearnig aids for over 30 years. Both times my hearing returned, but each time at less capacity than prior to the total losses. It was then that I learned that the intermittent noises in my head = tinnitis. Once the ear infection that prompted the antibiotics was gone, my dr gave me homeopathic medication which zapped the tinnitis, but left me feeling stranded or alone, without the continued presence of the long tolerated noises! My world was suddenly too quiet! So, I no longer take the homeopathic preparation, just guzzle a lot of water, lay off sweets, and see my chiropractor from time to time, whenever the noises get in my way. Good luck.

Hi Ladogalink

If you still hang around these boards, wondering what your doctor gave you that zapped the tinnitus? I'd kill for silence again..
