buzzing sensation in head
skicat77 posted:
i am wondering if anyone else has ever experienced a buzzing sensation in your head, sometimes accompanied by dizziness. i have had a ct, mri, dizzy/balance test and allergy tests. i've seen 3 neurologists. the last one said it was basil migraines. he perscribed xanax .25mg 3x day and elavil. the xanax worked but only for a couple hrs. at a time. i then added the elavil, 12.5 mg. all my symtoms went away within 5 days....then came back! dr. increased elavil to 25 mg. this is my 2nd day on the higher dose of elavil and i almost fainted this am after being up about an hour. my heart was beating fast and my blood pressure went to 150/95. i don't normally have high bp. if anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreiciated.

Are you just having buzzing or do you have pain as well? I have alot of that buzzing in the head & ears & dont know if its from medications or what. That will be on my question list for the next doctor appt.

I found out my thyroid may be causing a buzzing in my head. I have also had hearing hallucinations like music or something. I looked it up and it's a type of hearing loss, but there's no cure. Your meds could be making it tho for you.
