Hearing & Balance: Tumors of the inner ear are not common. The most common tumor of the ear would be an acoustic neuroma which is benign and not cancer. Most present with hearing loss - usually gradual but can be sudden. Tinnitus (abnormal sound in the ear) is possible as well. Dizziness is a very uncommon presenting symptom because these tumors usually grow very slowly the body compensates for the loss of balance.

Check out this link: Unfortunately, there's no cure for tinnitus. However, fortunately it's not a fatal condition. Consider seeing an ENT specialist esp. If it's accompanied by hearing loss, dizziness, headache, passing out etc. Perhaps exposure to loud or soft. Constant noise at your workplace or noise may have contributed to your condition.

How come?: Why? There must be a reason. Maybe the doctor will share it with you. If there's no reason or he/she won't discuss it with you, you have good reason to change to someone else.

Vasotec (enalapril) problmes: You should call your physician (p) to discuss your problem. Your p had a reason to change your medication and if you have problems with vasotec (enalapril) (v) to let the p know. You are a diabetic and v is able to reduce both blood pressure and protein in the urine, perhaps that is why you were changed to v.

Not likely: This does not sound like the typical presentation of an avm. Avms or av fistulas near the head regions have been reported to have a bruit which is a roaring type sound. However, these tend to be constant. You should have this checked out by a physician.

Listen to your doc: Tinnitus is a common problem but only rarely caused by a serious problem. If the initial examination did not reveal a likely cause, an MRI is the next best step.

MRI?: Just wondering if you might have an acoustic neuroma (benign tumor of the 8th cranial nerve)? An MRI with contrast would show this. If so, there are treatments. An ENT (ear nose throat) doc should be able to answer your questions.
