I had perfect vision at 38y/o. At 39y/o I had glasses related to my left eye had gone bad far away. In the past yr, I have developed halos, starbursts, & blurry vision with vertical double vision. Also, I have pain in my eyes especially with movement and my eyes are tender to touch. My opthamologist said I had dry eyes and to do drops 3-4 times a day.

Now I have loud ringing in my ears, pain and pressure over a month now. No infection per PCP. Did medrol dose pack which made no difference. Yesterday, I started with crackling sound when I move my ear lobe and press below my ear. Then i noticed that a bit of fluid that is leaking. Just enough to make my ear damp. I did see my ENT and he said after my hearing test that I have "some" hearing loss, but ear drums are fine and he doesn't see anything wrong and has no explanation. (no scan done)flow

I also have these "surges" that end with tingling in my tongue, lips, face. It last about a second or two. Also, dont forget the headaches.

No answers!!

So, I guess basically I have to live with for the rest of my life! I feel like I'm losing my vision and now my hearing. Just take the pain from my ears and I guess I could tolerate the rest.
