About three days after my car accident my Tinnitus started and it happened in a few minutes. I had temporal lobe damage from the accident in the
Temporal region on my left side. Mine is not an ear issue, in fact the sound seems to be loud in both ears. I use this sound to judge the state of
my seizure risk. If it gets louder I have to eat anti-epileptic foods and or take a specialized supplement mix. Then it almost goes away.
Mine is a problem with scarring in the temporal lobe which even showed up on the MRIs. If it gets loud, my risk of partial seizures
increases...sugary foods really increase the noise and epilepsy risk. Carbs of certain kinds don't raise it, but too much sweets and it jumps right
I usually use asparagus, cabbage, potatoes, and specially made soups to control it but without low consumption of sugars those don't work. Strangely,
sugar on strawberries, blueberries, or cherries are not bad at all, so I can eat those with sugar without much increased seizure risk, must be the
anthrocyanins they contain. So, I can eat blueberry, cherry, and berry pies made from fresh berries with cane sugar.
My tinnitus is not what most people have, but there are some people there that can use this information. Had it now for twenty years. I can hear
most every frequency except the high pitched noise which matches that sound. Identifying wheel bearing noise is a lot harder now because of that
problem. The hearing tests I took after the accident showed no problem with the ears but a definite problem identifying sounds within the frequencies
of the noise. I also get occasional bong or bell sounds, used to those happening....means I need some special soups. Taurine supplements do help to
suppress the volume but not as good as my special soups or asparagus do.
So mine is technically not tinnitus which others have but it still is considered under the class of tinnitus in medicine even though it is in the
temporal lobe and the filtering part of the brain. I am also more susceptable to certain frequencies that people cannot even hear like some light
bulbs and some frequencies from towers and I don't have a clue why and it is pretty impossible to figure out why some are a problem while others
aren't. Boy, the dishwasher used to mess me up and so do certain cycles of the freezers and the condensate pump of the new gas furnace.
Certain medicines actually cause tinnitus, you would need to research that to find if the class of medicine does that. It is the class that is
important, medicines do not always state they cause tinnitus till it is proven that they do so look it up in a year and it may be listed then...or
just look up the types of meds that cause the problem. It is common for some classes of meds to cause this problem.
