One More Question

Postby WeeMorgan » Fri May 18, 2007 1:52 pm

Hello. I was wondering if anyone else has swelling of the extremities. Is this a sign of the syringo? Maybe it is just my medication. And what about ringing in the ears. It is really more of a high pitched screeching noise. It is almost like when you have a television turned on but the sound down all the way. You cannot hear the TV volume, but you know it is on because of a faint electrical sound. I hope I am making sense. Does anyone else know what I am talking about? Maybe the syringo is causing me to lose my mind as well. :) Thank You. CM

I gave you a site before that had a list of symptoms. But ringing in the ears can be other things too. So you have to start ruling things out.Here is that site again:
Also here is a good site with list of symptoms .

And remember everyone is different. One may have ringing another may not. One may have swelling another may not. You need to get to a qualified NS .

Swelling and ear ringing could be from your medication .

Also just because A Dr . has excellant write up on the internet doesnt always mean he is excellant . Remember that . Take care

I have ringing in my ears worse some days than others. I think that it is more a sign of cm than sm. Have you looked at the symptom list for cm? It might be something that needs to be looked into as well. About 70% of sm is caused by cm. Ringing in the ears (called tinnitus) is also a common side effect of certain drugs. Is the tinnitus a new thing or have you had it for a while? You may want to check with your pharmacist to see if it is a side effect of any of the meds that you are on.

How bad is your swelling? Are you talking about swelling in your hands? Feet?

I get ringing in my ears, too, but I think I may have hearing damage due to too many concerts in my youth, loud noises and having kids screaming in my ears all day long at work. I hear ringing a lot :?

I've had ringing in my ears for over a's not my meds as I went without meds for months and months and so far I've only been dx with SM. So I do blame SM for my tinnitus. I have no other conditions that I am aware of besides SM. My feet/ankles were swelling for awhile..they got HUGE and that was after starting a new med...eventually the swelling stopped. I know this doesn't help much..I'm sorry...but it is my experience.

much luv,
