Don't know if its due to the fibro,but have heard a lot of fibrosis saying they have it. Sensativity to noise is also a common theme. I have drops every so often for the tinnitus as although I seam to have it all the time,sometimes it increases to the level of a large jet engine!..not fun.

Hi I have had Tinitus for last couple of years but I have inherited Maniers from my dad (thanks dad! as if I didn't have enough balance problems already) so that is more likley cause of it for me.

Hi all

I have had Fibro for 11 years, about two years later I got Tinnitus and Asthma, it is all part of Fibro with a host of other ailments. Because Fibro affects all your muscles and tendons, parts of your body have a tendancy to go into spasms i.e. Gullet, Bowel, Bladder so on and so forth.

Hi i suffer with Tinnitus, well i think so anyway. I have this constant ringing in my ears. When i go to bed I have a fan on all the time through summer and winter to try to block out some of the sound as it drives my bonkers. I think it it on the list of many symptoms of fibromyalgia. Its a horrible illness to have. I hate everyday.

Tinnitus

Postby goangirl » Tue Apr 02, 2013 4:28 pm

I don't have ringing, but a sort of low thud in my ears. Is that a sort of tinnitus?

I'm beginning to doubt the diagnosis of Menieres I received a few years ago and wonder if the tinnitus and dizziness are due to the fibro. But yes I get tinnitus constantly, and occasionally so loud it drowns everything else out.

Tinnitus, hearing problems and balance problems were the first things that started appearing symptom~wise for me and lead to a dx of Menieres and me being treated for it unsuccessfully for 4 very long and stressful years. It was only after being referred for a second lot of those horrendous balance tests that it came to light that what had been referred to as "Menieres~like symptoms" by my GP at the time was taken as a definite dx by the consultant, even tho the results from the balance tests gave no indication of the condition.

Mine has been attributed to migraines, which was what the audiologist said after the first lot of balance tests, altho nothing was ever said to me until then.

I get really bad tinnitus when my neck is realy stiff.

It restricts the blood flow and i can hear pumping and whooshing and like a car enguine thats on just sat outside :crazy: if you know what im saying :crazy:

I also recently had a weeks worth f strong anitbiotics, this gave me the worst tinnitus iv ever experienced. Constant drumming in my head and dizzyness to point i coudnt function at all, more worse at night and when i was tired.

I have suffered with tinnitus for some years now along with fibro. I have also become noise sensitive. Thought it was just an age thing but I do believe that both are symptons of fibro :( .
