Had bells palsy for 10 months. My head is buzzing &the left side ear/head has been painful from start. Going to nuerologist next week. Help welcome?

Perhaps a variant: Your description leads me to wonder if, in your case, the bell's palsy was due to "herpes zoster oticus" or ramsey-hunt syndrome. You may have possessed a tell-tail eruption if your doctor looked into your ear. Discuss with your neurologist, and decide upon an approach. Read more

What could cause a throbbing pain in my head and buzzing in left ear?

What could cause a throbbing pain in my head and buzzing in left ear?

Prob not ear: It is possible your pain may be referred by something else such as your jaw or teeth. If your ear is ok then I would focus on your jaw as a cause. Soft diet, ice, antiinflammatory medications and see your dentist. It is rare for pain caused by the ear to come and go. Read more

I have a strange buzzing in my head. No blurriness, no dizziness, no tingling in the body. Just a buzz in the back of my head by my left ear.

Tinnitus: Most common reason involves inner ear, a response by your acoustic nerve to degeneration, prior trauma, perhaps loud noise exposure, but could also be due to obstructed eustacian canal, transmitted blood vessel turbulence. Most likely benign and annoying, but might get examined to assure no future risks to hearing. Read more

Acute ringing in ear (tinnitus) last 24 hrs. Also weird "buzzing" sensation in head. Not quite vertigo though. Does this sound like Meniere's?

Tinnitus: Tinnitus or "ringing" or "buzzing" in the ears are common symptoms which can be short lived or chronic. It is associated with hearing loss. Sudden onset tinnitus can occur in patients with noise exposure or ear infections. If symptoms persist or worsen over 3 or more weeks, it is recommended to see your doctor for an evaluation. In the absence of vertigo Meniere's is less likely. Read more

Will have eeg results thurs. During eeg hyperventilation I had intense ringing in ears & buzzing/sharp pain/cold feeling in head. Normal or seizure?

Not that unusual: The way you felt during hyperventilation is possibly due to the breathing, and it is not an indicator for a seizure. What the brain waves looked like is more important, perhaps you will hear about this when the report of this study is finalized. Read more
