I had an acute onset of hearing loss, squeeky robotic sounds and high pitched distorted hearing. It has now been 6 months. I still have a constant low pitched hum left. Sometimes it kind of pulses not with my heartbeat. I have had negative lp, mri's, and MS workup. They tell me that my blood pressure could have spiked and damaged something and I may have to just deal with it. I do have a bad disc in my neck and sometimes i can make this sound go away with certain positions of my head. Could it be related to my neck? Should I give up or try another specialized doctor somewhere?
Tinnitus after sudden sensorinerual hearing loss can be a persistant problem. It is reassuring that you have had a thorough work up. There are reports relating cervical spinal disease and tinnitus. However, you have a history ssnhl which may be the cause of your difficulty. Treatment of your spinal issues may not guarantee cessation of your tinnitus. However, if the sound is affecting your quality of life and is overwhelming, perhaps it would be worth pursuing further medical work up. Good luck.
