Does any one else suffer from tinnitus and is there a link to gallbladder problems? Both seem to have started at the same time for me and it's driving me mad!

    I experienced it for the first time when I had a bad attack a couple weeks ago. I definitely think there's a correlation. Are you getting surgery?

      Hi, I'm working my way towards surgery. I'm having a stomach endoscopy tomorrow and if that's clear I'm being referred to a surgeon. The tinnitus is yet another very tiring part of the whole thing. What stage are you at?

    Hello, I have had tinnitus for at least 20 years, and a lot of the cause can be stress related.  Mind started after a very heavy cold and eventually saw a lovely consultant who went through everything, had a deep bore to remove wax from ears, hearing was very acute after this but didn't help with the tinnitus.  I was then refered to a wonderful  audiologist and there I started to understand more about the cause and how to deal with it. 

    The noise I hear is my noise and nobody else's it not just 'ringing in the ears' as most people think.

    The noise you hear has happened for one reason and another and has got stuck within the skull and goes round and round trying to escape.  What one has to do is try to put your noise behind you and not let it get to you.  

    I have good days and bad days but this has not affected my overall hearing it's just a noise.

    what I can say is that through going diagnosis one doctor was doing a study and said there was a link between high cholesterol and tinnitus and encoured me to go for testing and yes I did have it, apparently it affects the smallest bone in the ear/body.

    I had my gall bladder out just over two weeks ago and I have had good days and bad days both leading up to having op and afterwards.

    there is nothing one can do but to attempt to keep calm and just try to put at back of your daily routine.

    read all you can about tinnitus and good luck.

    my noise is water gushing through a pipe and the brain stored this up for months and then released it.  

    Hope this helps in someway

      Hi, it does help thank you. Noise that's stuck in my head is a good way to think about it.

    I had it, and still have it sometimes. Funny you mentioned a link between the two issues. Mine started like a year after my GB problems. I found hypnosis/meditation to reduce my tinnitus dramatically. My hearing is not impaired, and I have not suffered any trauma in my ears either, so mine just started.

    Tinnitus is just a signal to your brain, and I guess that is why hypnosis works so well. I barely notice mine anymore.

      Chinese medicine seems to make a link between the two. I know there's also a link between tinnitus and vitamin B12 deficiency but I think my blood tests haven't shown a problem there. I've been trying mediation and find that helps in general. Thank you for the reply.

    I have had tinnitus for over a year now.

    It's a constant high pitch nose in both ears. Bending multiple doctors, three Specialists I saw for the ear told me that I had to basiclt learn to live with it. I have tried Beltone hearing aids, anti inflammatory pills, nothing works. I feel like I have been cursed..

    By reading some of the threads in this form I want to try hypnotism.

    Need to keep trying until we find a cure, as I am not spending the rest of my life with this noise in my head .......
