Unclear. A recent trial to examine this drug was suspended and trials of other drugs have not shown efficacy. Importantly, she should speak to her doctor for help managing her blood sugars to reduce the risk of further diabetic complications. There are alternatives to helping reduce the the severity of the tinnitus as well as associated side effects of the tinnitus. Please have her speak with her doctor. Read more...

I noticed 3 raised small lumps (like size of pea) near my left ear. I'm worried it's swollen lymph node. I had a raised pea-lump on bottom chin before?

Cannot diagnose. Without an exam and the ability to see these lesions cannot tell what they are. If lymph nodes, they are probably doing what they are supposed to, cleaning up inflammation. See your local pcp if these continue or get larger. Read more...
Monitoring Centers. Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. Read more...

Tinnitus (constant and loud) in left ear/head, no hearing loss (test done), throat congestion, no nasal congestion, little hypersensitivity, from 18days?

LPR. Laryngopharyngeal edema (lpr) is a form of acid reflux that is often 'silent', meaning that heart burn is absent. If tiny amounts of acids make it high into the back of your throat, a dry cough, hoarseness, shortness of breath or ear fullness from eustachian tube irritation can develop. Treatment is to discontinue caffeine and alcohol, no late meals and otc-ppi such as Omeprazole before meals. Read more...

What can cause my 7 year old girl to have hearing loss she had it in left ear dr gave her medicine its getting better but now her right ear has it?

Probably ear fluid. Did your daughter have an ear infection and antibiotics helped it resolve? If so, when the worse ear resolves, the less affected opposite ear can be more prominent. Read more...
Likely otitis media. Otitis media is a condition typically characterized by the buildup of fluid behind the eardrum in the middle ear space. This condition is quite common in children, with decreasing incidence as eustachian tube function improves with increasing age. If your child had a cold, it's quite possible for her to have one ear affected followed by the other. See ENT if symptoms persist or recur. Read more...

My friend 18yr is havin type a bilaterally (bilateral sensorineural hearing loss) right ear is 20db-100db. Left ear is 20db-80db. Any suggestion to cure?

Consider hearing aid. Your numbers and description aren't quite right. I'm guessing there was a type a tympanogram, meaning no fluid and no conductive hearing loss. I'm guessing the there was an srt of 20 db in each ear, and an understanding score of 100% in the right ear and 80% on the left. The left ear needs further evaluation, recheck in 6 months. If having trouble hearing aids would be the best treatment. Read more...
