Hello everyone! I am so happy to have found this site! What brings me here is a situation with my 8 year old son. For about 6 months (maybe longer) he has complained on and off about ringing in his ears. He told me the ringing is 24 / 7 and never goes away. He had multiple ear infections as an infant / toddler which resulted in having tubes in both ears. They have pushed their way out, and he has been ear infection free for quite some time. I should not have discarded my sons complaints for as long as I did.
I took him to an ENT last week for his problem and he was given a hearing test. His hearing is fine, and he has no fluid in his ears. I was given no direction from the doctor other than tinnitus - to which there is no medication and herbs are not advisable for children. After posting this problem on webMD, however, the ENT specialist there suggested I take him to a Neurologist (as my son also experiences migraines........has had probably 5 in the past year).
I am going to take his suggestion, but was wondering if anyone here had this sypmtom that a neurologist was able to help them with. There is quite a wait to get into a neurologist - so if there is anything encouraging anyone has to share it will hopefully help the waiting. Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
