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 there I had the Prednisone 20 (corticoids) + B12 injections. It did not help, and the doctors tell me to make it. After internet consulting, I came across ginkgo biloba, kidney tea. Now I'm 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 was just 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 for the treatment? Thank you very much for the time spent with this request 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.

Therefore, we do not investigate the cause of your tinnitus ...

But we can rightly say that either the hair cells die, 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 do 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 acting in opposition . 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 far as Ginkgo biloba is concerned , it also increases blood flow to the brain - I do not know if it is true, I do not have a well-studied ginkgo. "Kidney Tea" is a broad concept, so I will not even tell you anything.

What to do in practice

In any case, buy 150g of a quality sliced ginseng and drink broth of several slices a day, preferably together with a tomato sauce and a coffee spoon 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 relieved after experiencing this dose, you will know that ginseng does not handle your problem. If that happened, you do not have to regret having tried it. The chance that your ginseng will help is real and not small. If the ginseng takes, you can start lowering the 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 increase your ability to work at the time of testing. 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 TV, taking any medication, unless you have been specifically advised to take a doctor, smoking more than one cigarette a day, drinking caffeine (coffee, black / green tea, and so on energy drinks ) in quantities greater than 2 cups in the morning, drinking alcoholic beverages in quantities greater than 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 come 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.
