I was in a car accident 6 mos ago, where i was the driver, and tboned on the driver side wheel well so hard that the axl snapped like a twig.
I was lucky, but I suffered 4 herniated discs - 2 in the neck, 2 in the low back - as well as a couple more bulging discs that are actually pushing on the nerves.
As a response to this I have started having TinnuTitus ear ringing that ranges from deafening noise to slightly bothersome. It comes and goes with no seeming reason or time of day more position that I may be in whether it be lying down or standing up.
The only thing I noticed is that it seems to worse than when I take caffeine and for the brief time I was on tramadol.
However it has been several months since I've taken any medication other than that and I still have it.
I have never ever suffered ear ringing in my entire life.
As far as I'm aware I don't have any seasonal or pollen type or animal allergies.
I have no itchy eyes are running nose or anything like that.
I have had sinus problems my whole life but recently in the last 2 months besides the ear ringing I have woken up on certain days feeling like I have an extreme head cold with sinus pressure pain sore throat and that brain fog disoriented feeling.
Extremely difficult to get out of bed and sometimes I don't.
I went to the doctor and she said she did see some fluid buildup behind the ears.
I have seen some friends here where someone mentioned a back injury and the ear ringing.
Could it be Meniere's disease?
Any thoughts what I should ask the doctor when I go back for a visit she is a general practice nurse practitioner.
Thank you in advance and God bless
