[Governors Island Brats] Re: chronic tinnitus
- I have a low buzz all the time in my ears. I notice it more if I
bite down. It is not too bad and I only notice it in quiet rooms and
at night. I just use a room fan to add some noise. The buzz becomes
very noticable and annoying a day after I take aspirin or ibuprofin.
I wonder how many tinnitus cases might go away or lessen if they
would stop all medications for a month or more. I guess the problem
is if they quit their meds for a month...they may go away. Catch-22
For those who take aspirin (or any over-the-counter meds) for home
remedies, have tinnitus, and no prescribed medical reason to take the
drugs, it might be worth it to stop using the products and see if the
tinnitus symptoms lessen over time.
I firmly believe my father and grandmother's hearing loss is directly
attributed to their use of pain medications especially aspirin and
motrin for arthritis. No one else in the family has had their degree
of hearing loss. No one else in the family has used over-the-counter
pain meds the way they have either. It's a small sample but I see
the correlation and I now use all medications with moderation.
