Hello everyone, just started this forum today. Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease is what I have and been diagnosed with it. Roaring sounds that would actually wake me up at night. It is also the first thing I hear upon waking. And for the dizziness. You know that feeling you get when you ride in an elevator and it has just reached the floor. Sort of up and down motion. Well I got those movements all day long. Or trying to back my car out of the drive way had me spinning like a top. My face felt like it was being pushed into my ears. Some days my hearing was bad but other days it is super sensitive. Medicines that help, prednisone and methotrexate. I also had good results with Tramadol.
I have some signs of lupus, I have been told I have Sjogren's and RA and Hashimotos thryoid, with of course your basic high blood pressure, anemia, and an ever rising blood sugar level.
Medicines I take Synthroid, prednisone, blood pressure pill, folic acid, plaquenil, flexeril, tramadol and sleeping pills. Also the once a week injection of methotrexate. I am currently trying clonopin for anxiety and lexapro for being sad.
