Is Tinnitus A Symptom Of Fibromyalgia


Causes of Tinnitus

Tinnitus is not a disease. Rather, it is a symptom of an underlying problem. It sometimes happens when those tiny hairs inside your ears get hurt in some way. It affects the signals that go into your brain and change the way you hear sounds. The damage may be due to normal aging or some other illnesses. Among the possible triggers are the following:

• Loud noises such as sporting events, concerts, machinery work, gun firing, etc.

• Age-related hearing problems.

• Ear infections or pressure from sinus.

• Flu, cold or allergies.

• Too much earwax.

• Certain medications, such as antibiotics and aspirin.

• Jaw problems.

• Hardening of arteries and high blood pressure.

• Other medical issues such as Lyme disease and fibromyalgia.

      Have you tried gabapentin? It does not help everybody but it helps me. Also helps me sleep at night. I take 2 x 300 during the day and 1 x 600 at night. Hope you feel better soon!

        It is really helping me . Within the last two weeks of a new Dr. better regulating my Gabapentin dosage and times taken each day, my uncontrollable, pain and muscle spasms have decreased to very few each day, are of a very weak intensity and only last a few seconds each now. WOW, what a difference! ! ! You shouldtalk this over with your doctor if you suffer with these issues.
