Tinnitus in a Planning, Efficient PersonSince taking Wellbutrin for two weeks four weeks ago, I have had tinnitus, probably since Wellbutrin is ototoxic.
I am prone to tinnitus in general, and I've had it in the past from cold medicine (not sure which one, since it was an OTC combo), aspirin, and cold.
I also tend to be sensitive to noises and bodily sensations, so having a frustrating sensation that I can't get rid of is devastating to me.
1. High-pitched ringing in ears. It's always there, but the intensity varies during the day. Usually worse at night and better (less noise) in the morning and in the afternoon.
2. Feels like it's in my brain but it's unclear where. So, ears, or higher up in brain.
3. Started when I started taking Wellbutrin.
4. Worse at night.
5. Better in the morning (usually) or when I take vitamins that decrease homocysteine (like TMG).
6. Hard to fall asleep, no recurring dreams.
7. Sensitive to bodily sensations and sound - highly sensitive person. Have been prescribed Theridion in the past, but taking it recently, the tinnitus seems to have become worse.
8. Usual state of mind: perfectionistic, very focused on being efficient and making good use of time. Plan and keep a detailed calendar and to-do lists. Frugal. Fast reader and walker. Don't have much enjoyment, life is a stress.
9. Dairy makes the symptom worse. I have to avoid gluten, corn, and dairy because all of these tend to make me depressed if I eat them.
10. Anorexic age 14, chronic Lyme disease the past three years (age 22-25).
11. Tinnitus from aspirin, hives from Ciprofloxacin, throat swelling and depression from Lamictal, prickly skin and hives from Zoloft.
12. I've taken Theridion 6C six months ago for 3 months, it was good. Tried Theridion 9C recently but it did not help the tinnitus and possibly made it worse so I stopped taking it.
13. No particular other symptoms. Just ear ringing.
