I am posting here because I can't think of a more appropriate place for doing so - and any suggestions would be welcome.
I have probably had tinnitus for quite a long while. I have been on various meds including mirtazapine and Lithium.
Has anyone found that they seem to have developed tiimitus as a result of being on one or other psychiatric medication.
I have just had my ears syringed and it is no better. If anyone wants to know how to test for it - or whether they have got it - say put your hands over your ears - if you can still hear something then you have got it - in my case it is a whooshing.
Internet sites say that it can be caused by stress - last night I had been to a party and afterwards I noticed it.
I aso notice it when I am lying in bed alone - particularly when I am not particularly tired - last week I had to get up and do a Sudoku to get more tired!
I have found on a NHS website that there are NHS tinnitus counsellors.
I would welcome any feedback, any pointers to other resources or any help that people can give.
To be honest I used to tell it myself that it was the blood coursing round my brain - and I was just hearing what everyone else did - for some reason I have only just become so conscious of it.
