I've had tinnitus since I was in first grade. At times I have balance problems, vertigo, mostly caused by meds-acetaminophen simulates an inner ear infection-which I've had. The navy said that I had diver's ear. I also surfed, and liked to do laps beyond the surf-swimming parallel to the beach. Does anybody know what diver's and surfer's ear problems turn into as a person ages? I also have had lots of ear abscesses, the sinus surgeries, the smaller bronchi caused by this life style- but it was fun-
Have you tried seeing a Dive Medicine doctor? If you need help finding one you can contact DAN at 1-919-684-2948. You can also ask a question online at www (dot) diversalertnetwork (dot) org / myaccount/mscc/emailmedic.asp. They will have a different perspective than regular doctors and specialists like the ENT's that you have seen as they are always doing research on diving and the long term effects on people who have been diving both commercially and for sport. Hope this idea will help you.
