Hi Syded,

I've had ringing in my ears since my concussion 3 years ago. Stress and/or being tired seems to make it more noticable to me. I also have the 'pressure' and sometimes I have nose bleeds from the left nostril along with what I describe as pressure blowing out my left ear....blood pressure is also an issue.

It sounds as though you could be having some vistular issues....inner ear problems caused from the concussion. Do you have an Ear Nose Throat Specialist? They would be a good place to start to find out what is going on.

Though we talk, discuss our issues, the best thing to do, as always, is tell your doctor, don't take no for an answer, demand that he/she listen to you.

If it is vistular issues, well you will adjust to the 'noises' and you'll get use to it. Just as with anything new, it is more intense at first, and as time goes along...it becomes less intense.

The aftermath of a concussion is difficult at best....I believe in light and I believe the path we are on as an individual has all the possibilities in the world.

Though I would not want to have this happen to anyone, as it is hard, trying, and your world changes...as I know I am not the person I was before the fall, and never will be again, at times it is diffucult as I was really smart, sharp, a very Type A personality....I have to take things slower, I have to stay calmer, I have to realize I have limitations...and you know it's not such a bad thing.....

Staying positive, not giving up...but realizing there are limitations, staying in touch with my light, my energy....I'm becoming who I am destined to be....

Pay attention to your inner self and follow your light....

heh, welcome to my new world. I am five months out from winter fall running.The ringing in my ears is still present. I have an appointment with ears nose and throat speacialist in a month. I was led to beleive earlier that the whiplash and the neck injury I sustained was causing the noise, but I think now that it is damage to the hairs in the inner ear, that will never go away. I have been feeling a bit better and booked a trip next week. I have begun running again and all symptoms have returned. The neck is awful and back and it has brought the headaches back full force. Memory and thought process are strained as well. I think that we all have to settle down for the long hall. I am nolonger thinking that I will bounce back from this anytime soon. I look now to the year mark instead of the week or month mark. I know that it sounds sad but I realize now that things happen and this wasn't a good thing and now I have to try to live and heal from this. Anyway, I think what I have learned this far is that I need to take life at a slower pace, and realizing that it is okay not to do everything perfect. By the way, sorry if there are any spelling issues but I notice things don't come easily to the mind and I have to really rethink things. I hope this gets better too. I do have a few questions to the more experienced. I have read things do get better. Does this include memory, spelling, having to really think into my head to get an answer. The other thing is that I fly out in 8 days. Is it dangerous to my ears in anyway for more damage. Thanks a bunch for any info.

I have had ringing in my ears ever since I had my accident 35 years ago. I think they call it tinnitus, but I have never had it diagnosed. It is like a continual high-pitched 'rushing' sound. It is not so loud and I cannot say that it bothers me. Sorry if yours is worse than this,

John
