tinitus caused/aggravated by blood pressure medicines?
About a month ago I apparently contracted a virus that resulted in infection in my ears and tinitus in both ears. Although the ringing has subsided, it is still there. Does this tend to go away with time? It seems to be subsiding, and I'm wondering if it will ever completely go away.
Also - I read on the ata web site that diuretics including hydrochlorothiazide, which I take for blood pressure, can cause tinitus. Does anyone have any experience or information about that? Their website is the only reference I've found relating the two, and I don't know what to make of it.
Lastly - anyone recommend any sound systems to mask tinitus at night? I'm looking at the Sleep Oasis line, anyone have any experience with them?
