Hi, I was just searching the internet for problems with the ears and came across your posts. I thought I'd give it a shot and drop you a note. My ears have a "mold" smell to them and I was wondering if that happens where mold can grow in ears. I have neck problems and foggy/dizzieness. Maybe that's the problem? If so, what helps?
Hi, Colleen (Milo_1) here again, I wrote about my mom and Meniere's, and now I'm writing for myself. I had a motorcycle drive past me at 14 years old. It was very loud. In high school (1980 grad), I flunked 2 hearing tests. I blamed it on a cold and ignored it. Now, 3 hearing aids later (in canal, in ear (2) ), the tinnitus is very loud. I have been looking into the open ear technology. They seem to be very expensive, and since I only work part time, I can't justify the expense to myself. Are hearing aids my only option? I had a test done in the 90s that said I had 30decibal loss in both ears.
thanks in advance, Colleen
Hi, Your profile doesnt say much, but you seem knowledgeable in the matters of the ear. I'm writing because my mother, age 74, has been dx'd with Meniere's disease. The loud roaring is in one ear, she's had the labyrinth procedure with the injection of steroids, it has not helped. EENT suggested diet to her, no caffeine, no smoking, no salt and she told him "just kill me now." Needless to say, she's not too interested in the diet. The killing off of the ear, she said no, she wanted to avoid that if possible. She has the dizziness and the roaring on a daily basis. She lives alone, I live in another state, my brother checks on her (he lives same town) alot. What if anything non surgical can she do to manage the Meniere's. I know there's no cure, but I herd some meds can help.Thanks
