The patient is 34-year-old female who is a mother of 2 kids.
She has had hearing loss and tinnitus in her left ear for 3 years and tried steroid injections, but they didn’t work. Since a week ago, clogged feeling and low pitch noise have gotten worse. She visited my clinic being afraid that she would have to use a hearing aid for her left ear because she had already been using a hearing aid for her right ear for 14 years.
She consulted two specialists and both of them told her that her ears were crappy and would not be improved.
What I try to do mainly during the sessions is relieving the tenderness around her ears and neck with my finger-pressure, and loosening the skin on the skull especially around the ears.
Ringing in her left ear has gradually decreased and the noise has become like wind and then computer fan, and it has become as low as she doesn’t notice, though it sometimes gets worse when she is tired.
Her right ear that has been using a hearing aid for 14 years also has been improved and she doesn’t need to use the hearing aid anymore, though it sometimes feels clogged and the hearing is weaker than her left ear.
Once she had vertigo and went to the specialist, she was diagnosed as Meniere’s disease, but she hasn’t had vertigo after a few treatments.
She is continuously having acupuncture treatment to improve and stabilize the condition.
