Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears can become a chronic condition. From what you've described, you've had this for almost a year now along with additional symptoms. The typical testing for patients with tinnitus would include a hearing (audiogram) along with a test of the ear drum (tympanogram). In some situations, providers may also recommend further testing including imaging studies like an MRI

Sinus infection?: The muscle aches, headache, and fever suggests some infection. It sounds like it might be a sinus infection. If fever is over 100.5, then seeing a doctor is wise. Otherwise, trying some decongestants and/or antihistamines to open up the sinuses and let them drain; and add some Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) for the muscle and head aches. See a primary care doctor if symptoms don't get better or do get worse.

My 5 year old daughter is complaining of "stomach" pain. No nausea, and her whole abdomen seems to be tender to the touch. Last bowel movement was yesterday. Normal appetite. Sleeping more than usual. No fever. It's hard to tell what's real & what's

Abdominal pain: Is there a histaory of abdominal trauma? What has she eaten or drank today? Regardless, first order is to induce a bowel movement since she hasn't had one today. Observe for another hour or two. If the stomachache worsens, a shift in the location of the pain occurs and/or she develops vomiting or fever, it will be best to have her evaluated at the ed tonight.

I would agree. If she's tender all over it could be something serious like a ruptured appendix. Get her to the Emergency Department.

Suppressed, not kill: The potassium citrate may have suppressed the bugs from growing and thus contributed to the symptom improvement, but it did not destroy the bugs. After stopping the citrate, the bugs again able to grow/multiply and thus return of your symptoms. I would recommend seeing a doc for a quick test/culture and antibiotic treatment. Don't waite too long as it may get worse. Good luck.
