I was diagnosed with " Bilateral Sensorneural Conductive Hearing Loss" severe nerve damage from the ear to the brain. It caused me SEVERE Panic Disorder w/Agoraphobia and Major Depressive Disorder. I took one of my Moms O.5 xanax pills she gave me 8 days ago and its working. My brain is sending me mixed signals. We are still working on finding out why and have a appt with a psychiatrist here soon, to see if this nerve damage caused these disorders, they started at the same time I started getting these blarring fog horn sounds in my ears 24/7. I took my 0.5 ml zanax about 10 days ago and OMG..for the 1st time in 3 yrs I slept, had no attacks which I had up to 6x a day, no depression, little to no mixed brain signals, no suicidal thoughts, I'm starting to get functional, no crazy thoughts, I even went out of the house and socialized again ! :) I still need diagnosed though. Have you ever heard of this Physical and Mental link before ?
ontherox' I am so sorry it took so long for someone to answer you our website had some problems and they have most of them worked out so some older post are floating in. If you don't get an answer in at least a few days post again..I hope you have gotten in to see the doctor by now and some of your questions are answered.But as far as the noises in the ear or ears they are very real. And when i was still working the drug of choice was valium or Xanax to help. JUST MY OPPINUN HERE but i would bet that the panic and agoraphobia etc has nothing to do with the ear problems But that being said it is not helping because of our constant worrying about medical problems. But the benefits of Xanax is it does help with those problems and the bonus is it's helping you with your ear problem. Sad to say but the panic and such in most cases is all on it's own but can be controlled now days.P.S.
be careful taking other people's meds even a family member a doctor may be hesitant to prescribe it to you. And anyone giving someone their medication is drug diversion And you don't want to get Mom in trouble with her doctor or you with yours. But your ahead of the game by knowing something that works Just don't be surprised if they want to give you something with the Xanax to help control your problems. I am 58 now dealing with stage 4 cancer and have been a agoraphobic for 40 years learning breathing techniques and relaxation.AND THE RIGHT MEDICATIONS AND LEARNING TO DEAL WITH IT. stay positive and continue slow to get out of the house little by little don't push yourself to Much.Be glad to help you with any questions you may have.It is surprising how many people suffer from this junk as I call it you are not alone my friend and know that helps.
P.S. Ontherox Did you get or see an ENT Doctor? And please know we are here to help and I am really sorry that it took so long.If you have see a Psychiatrist already would you mind letting me know what they decided. And my friend you can live a normal life with this condition but you must be patient sometimes it takes a while to get the right drugs working for you to get this under control.I would love to hear back from you.And just know you are far from being crazy ,nuts,or whatever we think not knowing better but it sure helps to know there are so many others that have this. And with some studying I have done I am convinced that this is a chemical imbalance..Best wishes It's going to be okay so happy for you that you are doing better.
I have ear problems,panic attacks did not start until then had a book years ago,a psychiatrist,said,most of her patient's had ear problems
