Can Fluid In The Ear Cause Tinnitus
I have middle ear fluid, chronic tinnitus, hearing difficulties, ear fullness and severe balance issues. Would myringotomy tubes or hearing aids help?
Does tinnitis from ear fluid build up and or infection go away when it clears? It started with an upper respiratory infection, and now it's glue ear.
Yes: If I'm understanding you correctly, you've developed noise in your ear after a cold, and you've been diagnosed as having fluid behind your ear drum. Fluid in the middle ear after a cold will usually resolve on its own after 6 to 8 weeks. You can definitely defelop noise with this, sometimes ringing, often a roaring sound. It should resolve when the fluid resolves. If not, see ent. ...Read more

Not likely: No Singulair (montelukast) is not likely 2 cause sleep myoclonus. The other conditions you mention are common in young children, middle ear fluid and adenoidal hypertrophy.

I am so sick of tinnitus, how could TMJ cause ringing in the ear, is their nerve between TMJ & ear?

It is highly unlikely that Concerta is the culprit. Antibiotics though have well known neurotoxic effects including hearing loss and tinnitus. ...Read more
Shooting ear pain within hours of touching each ear on separate occasions. Ear exam was fine. Fullness and tinnitus persist 2 months. Likely cause?
Likely unrelated: I am unable to draw any correlation between what you describe as "touching each ear" followed hours later by sharp pains. There is truly nothing neurological that I am aware does that sort of thing simply based upon the protracted delay between stimulus and response. However, if an ear exam does not reveal any problems have imaging studies of the IAC been done? Of the brain and temporal lobes? ...Read more
