    Does anyone have a lot of Buzzing in their Head?
    missist posted:
    My new doc said that I have chronic pain syndrome. I told him I have a constant buzz in my head like cicadas and he said that was all part of it--caused by nerves sensitized to chronic pain which also explains mood swings, depression & a bunch of other things that sure feel like they are from my neck and spine..

    so-- anyhow I wondered if anyone else has buzzing and pressure in their heads, I've never heard of it as part of this before. thanks!

    Mine is more like a constant low-volume ringing, not buzzing. It's not loud enough to be annoying, but if I pay attention it's always there. I've always associated it with migraines, which I've been getting for about 45 years. It's like my brain won't calm down completely between headaches, it stays jangly and twitchy.

    I'll look at it in terms of Fibro now that you've brought this up. Thanks for bringing this up. RL

    I think it is not as bad if I keep tv on or something loudish. It feels pressurized and buzzy too--not just what it sounds like. Sort of annoying, hard to fall asleep. Maybe I should get a radio for my bedroom.

    I have pulsitile tinnitus. It sounds like buzzing along with my heartbeat. I've found too much NSAID's will make it worse, as well as being tired.

    When it bothers me trying to fall asleep, I turn on an app on my smart phone for sleep sounds.

    I've had a buzzing or ringing in my ears,head, for a couple of years which worsened after I started taking Lyrica. I went to have a hearing test with a hearing specialist and was diagnosed with Tinnitus. I've seen commercials for Lip-o-Flavanoid that will help reduce this, although I'd rather find something natural, perhaps through dietary changes or exercise.

    Yes-buzzing, ringing & rattling. It is very hard to explain & so far, no doctor has been able to give me an explanation of this either.

    I just went to a hearing Dr(can't think of the title now lol), had a hearing test and the routine things, tests, spoke with him afterwards, my hearing is fine and the ringing, buzzing is Tinnitis. He mentioned that it probably has intensified due to taking the Lyrica.
