I am desperate to find out what is wrong with my wife, doctors do not seem to know.
My wife has been ill for around 10 weeks with tonsillitis, severe headaches, bacterial infection in legs. severe tinnitus and very bad swollen lymph nodes in the neck.
After seeing 3 different GPs twice each over the first 6 weeks I eventually managed to get her referred to the hospital. After spending 12 nights in hospital and been treated for "probably" viral meningitis she was told she could go home. During this time, the doctors tested for every worse case scenario and all were negative. She has had chest x-rays, CT scan and MRI. MRI showed she had a very small lesion on the brain and was told come back in a year for another MRI.
So, we were told that she needs to visit an ENT specialist but the nearest one is a 2 hours drive away. We were told we would receive a letter in the post for an appointment, this was a week ago now, and still waiting.
I am now doing my own research, and looking at different possibilities including ear infections, dental issues, eye issues, menieres disease, allergy problem and more. I was wondering if anyone has any advice or have similar issues? Her tinnitus is mostly in one ear but sometimes both, and she says it is so loud that it feel like a plane is landing in her ear. The nymph nodes around her neck and under jaw have been swollen most of this time, they go down for a bit but them come up again.
P.S I have also posted this in the Glands group as not sure where to post, there seems to be no general group for ENT.
