Swallowing in your ear as a result of building work


I should ask for you. About three months ago, I was grinding on the building and whistling in my ear. After a month, I went to my ear and there I was directed by Agapurin, after a week when it did not help sending me to a faculty hospital, and they put on Prednison 20 (corticoids) + B12 injections. It did not help, and the doctors tell me to make it any better. After internet consulting, I found ginkgo biloba, kidney tea. Now I am starting to enjoy it, but so far it is not a result. In your posts about tinnitus, I have read that the dying hair cells (neurons) can also be the cause. This is what I was told at the faculty hospital. Can you please tell me if she could do something about it? Or what could I support the treatment for? Thank you very much for the time spent with this inquiry and for advice. Ales.

Hello, Aleš,

It's not enough just to say you were grinding. It depends on what you have been grinding and what else you did and breathed on that building. Perhaps it was the infective droplets of one of your co-workers who were just sick.

The cause of your tinnitus is not ...

But we can say that your hair cells are dead, which is normal in the elderly, or something unfair in your brain. Already in other replies, I explained that tinnitus is a symptom that should not be underestimated . You are right to find the remedy - not against the tinnitus itself, but against its cause, which can potentially be serious. If your tinnitus does not persist, visit your doctor again to make a brain scan.

Some patients have good experience with ginseng

The effect of some ginseng components is to some extent similar to that of Agapurin (pentoxyfylline) and corticoids. Similarity is not complete. For ginseng as an adaptogen it is typical that it also contains components that act oppositely . I would say that ginseng has a chance to work more gently and for longer than these medications. With a detailed scientific explanation of the causes of ginseng's effects, I will not bother you here - people will find it on the site about the mechanisms of its action . As for Ginkgo biloba , it also increases blood flow to the brain - I just do not know if it is true, the ginkgo I have not studied enough. "Kidney Tea" is a broad term, so even I will not tell you anything.

What to do in practice

In any case, buy 150g of a quality sliced ginseng and drink broth of a few slices a day, preferably together with a snack and a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger (if you do not mind the sharp taste of ginger - you get used to it). Ginger has pronounced antiviral effects . That amount of ginseng is on trial. If you do not feel relief after experiencing this dose, you will know that ginseng does not handle your problem. If you do, you do not have to regret having tried it. The chance that your ginseng will help is real and not small. If ginseng does, you can start lowering doses. Finally, you should get a dose of about 2 g of ginseng a day, which should be kept for about three months.

Because you seem to be a diligent person, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that ginseng may, at the time of testing, increase your ability to work. The mental energy that ginseng supplies to many people is best used by planning work that is more challenging for mental concentration but at the same time as pure enough to avoid further chemical stress on your nervous system. This may be for example long-delayed administrative work, pure manual work, or whatever else you see fit. Avoid disturbing surroundings, watching television, taking any medication, unless you have been specifically instructed to take a doctor, smoking more than one cigarette a day, drinking caffeine (coffee, black / green tea, and so called energy drinks ) In an amount of more than 1 cup in the morning, drinking alcoholic beverages in excess of one beer in the evening, and do not forget to drink plenty of water and a regular 8-hour night's sleep . Do not adjust your alarm if it is not necessary - let your sleep grow to a natural awakening. Other effects of ginseng (for example, better blood circulation in the limbs , better erection , easier breathing, etc.) if you come to know yourself. The rule for drinking caffeine, alcoholic beverages and 8-hour sleep should be followed after the ginseng test period.
