I haven't posted for a while, I have been doing pretty good, recovering from my hernia operation well and back to work next week. I am having the odd TMS symptom popping up (TMJ, reflux, headaches) but never staying for more than a few minutes to a few hours...Until last week.... Headaches started, lasted 3-4 days. I got on with it and they started to slowly disappear, only to be replaced by a god awful ringing in my ears :S I have had a bit of a head cold aswell so the doctor thinks it may have something to do with it as he can see a little fluid behind the eardrums, but...I have come down with some pretty bad colds/flus and even ear infections but never experienced ringing in the ears. Its been going on almost a week, while I'm distracted it isn't too bad but as soon as I go to lay down, relax, read a book. It starts and it is driving me crazy! As usual after excessive googling ( I don't know why I do it to myself) the fear of the symptom has crept up on me, the words 'chronic' and 'decades of tinnitus' have got me shaking in my boots and I've only had the bloody symptom for 6 days, It's laughable at how quickly I am able to work myself up with fear and negative thinking! Just wondering if ear ringing is actually a noted TMS symptom and if so has anybody experienced a symptom like this?
