Question: Ringing in Ears, Extreme Photophobia, Sensitive to sound...


 Paulm - Sat Dec 29, 2007 12:12 am

Extreme issues causing me grief and hard living.

Male
Age 53
Benicar 1- 20 mg per day
Klonopin - . 5 twice a day

In the last 4 weeks I have been having:

* Extreme photophobia
* Vision disturbancees
* High sensativity to artificial light, lessor with ambient light
* Ringing in my ears
* A feeling of getting ready to pass out but I never do
* Vertigo when I try to concentrate or get tense
* Comes in waves
* Get sick to the stomach mostly from PANIC making everything worse
* No I have no headaches but sometime get a very very very light headache above my eyes. Nothing fantastic

I have been able to keep things down to a dull roar by:

* Working less (Hope my employer doesn't mind)
* At work I get up to walk a half mile or more twice a day for it seems to calm down the symtoms.
* Bed rest works the best. Almost disappears completely

Most recently I've been experimenting and found 320mg Beyer Aspirin practically knocks out all the symtoms described. Did 320mg for a few days. Felt pretty good. Stopped taking the Beyer. Symptoms snuck back over a few day period so, took 2 320mg Beyer and it knock down the symptoms pretty good. Did the 2 320s for a few days.

Now I am maintaining myself on Beyer 81, twice a day becasue I don't think 2 320's a day is good for my kidney. I have one kidney, born with just one. It's in good shape last I had a check-up but I should be easy on it.

Thoughts please on whether I should get aggressive or maybe whatever it is will pass?

Your time is precious and I haven't got the words other then Thank You

User avatar Hi Paulm,

I would recommend that you see your doctor about this. This may be an inner ear infection. Less likely, it may be a side effect from one of your medications.

Evaluation by your doctor is important.

Best wishes.
