My husband is a veteran who after multiple IED, RPG, basic bomb blasts near him while he was deployed. He Is now medically retired but the only issue he really has is constant ear pain, ringing, tinnitus, pressure, and vomiting. We have been going from doctor to doctor for 3 years to get this treated. No diagnosis has been made. He has taken vestibular tests, and that didn't help. There is not visible signs of anything according to every ENT we see. There is no neurologist who thinks there is anything wrong.He has had many tests, mri's Ent's, Eng test, vestibular test, therapies and nothing helps. He is in constant pain and feels there is no way to make it stop besides just dying. He is in severe constant pain, if we knew why maybe it could be treated. He doesn't deserve to live like this. This is ruling our lives and no doctor has been helpful...what is going on? Any suggestion would help....we are lost and confused and not being helped...

I have seen different doctors, one general doctor, 2 ENT doctors, 2 TMJ doctors, and even going out of the country for a second opinion. They have not found anything. Here is what is working for me. I think what is causing it is stress and insomnia in my case, so I have tried to relaxe by talking walks, doing yoga, taking hot baths and aromatherapy, studying the bible with Pastor Murray (this is not advertisement or anything), but I find it very relaxing and has helped me a lot. Also, I am trying to avoid junk food and try to drink a lot of carrot juice, since Chinese medicine use carrots to heal the ear. Fruits and Veggies help too. Vitamin B for the nervous system has been very helpful for me for almost any type of pain. Remember pain is carried tru the nerves, so keep the nerves nourished with vitamins B. I think in your case there could be ear damage, which doctors say is not curable, which I do not agree. I read a book that said if you drink freshly squeezed vegetable juice everyday for one year your whole body will regenerate according to the DNA blue print and it will be perfect again. The book is writen by Rev. George Malkus. God bless you
