I'm having increasing problems with tinnitus.  This morning, I woke up and could barely hear for the ringing in my ears, and I'm still having problems tonight.  This has been an intermittent, but increasingly more frequent problem for the past year.
 
Has anyone else had this problem and is there anything that can relieve it?  Is it possible to have hearing loss from this?  I have an EMG scheduled Friday, and plan to talk to my neurologist about it then.
 
Thanks, hugs, and happy New Year to all.  :)

Yes, no, and yes. Yes, I have this, quite severely sometimes, and always present. I don't know of anything that can relieve it (although I honestly haven't pursued treatment for it). Yes, it can cause hearing loss, over time. I'm sorry.

Hi Rhonda,

The ringing is still going on. I've had it off and on for over a year, but it's gotten really bad this week. The MS specialist is doing my EMG, so I can ask her about the tinnitus when I go in Friday morning.

I'll let you know how everything goes as soon as I get my results back.
Hugs,

Hey Lisa,

I had no idea that tinging of the ear maybe part of MS. For years I had like roaring sounds or chirping sounds etc and always thought it to be from my allergies. I will definately mention this to my PC nx wk and to my neru, am scheduled for the upper body nerve test, just had the lower done last month. I also have a severe hearing prob that has gotten worse over the last few years. I think it's time to trade me in hahaha.

Hugs

Carla, allergies CAN cause hearing problems, including tinnitus. Like with everything else with MS, common causes of problems -- like allergies affecting your hearing -- have to be ruled OUT, before settling on "that's happening because you have MS".
 
But MS obviously does affect the ability of nerves to transmit signals, and hearing is one of those signals that can be affected by lesions in the brain.

Thanks Uppity, My hearing problem started with nerve damange at age 6 due to the mumps and over the years has gotten worse. It was in my 30's that the crazy sounds started. I will see what the Docs say as I have never mentioned this to them. I have tried hearing aides in the past but they didn't work for me.

If it isn't one thing it's another :)

There are lots of nerve-related hearing problems that cannot be helped with hearing aides, unfortunately. I'm sorry!
