tinnitus and vaso-vagal

From: Julian


Just one more thought--

I was just reading this wonderful forum, with so much good information and read that s.o. was talking about fainting and hitting his/her head.

Just a little over a year ago, I went to a NTG for a hearing test and diagnosis of this horrible tinnitus that I had developed. For those who might not know, tinnitus is a ringing or swooshing sound in the ears that doesn't ever abate--a common reaction when first diagnosed is suicidal thoughts, b/c it's so heartbreaking and horrible to think you have to learn to live w/this noise for the rest of your life. Anyway, the specialist asked, first thing, if I had ever received a severe blow to the head, and I said no. But, now that I think about it, I must have recieved several--each time I passed out. If anyone else has tinnitus out there and has suffered or is suffering vaso-vagal, there might be this connection, I think.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
