Hello sir, I have been taking tablets for anxiety and depression for last one year. Gradually my doctor decreased dosage. Now iam using stresloc, Opiprol(antidepressant), and Alzolam 0.5. With capi gold vitamin tablet.I have generalised anxiety disorder. Six days ago I dint take that stresloc tablet. It's a combination of alprazolam and propranolol. And it's for morning and night. I decided to skip the morning dosage. First day I dint feel anything. But I couldn't sleep well. Second day I was feeling migraine in head. Anxiety has increased. On that day night I felt there was a fluid running in my head. At that same time , I heard some insect sounds coming from my head. It means insects are produced sound at night time and it's pitch level is high. That sound disturbed me a lot and my concentration was always on that. Before that incident I was watching movie through headphone with full sound in my mobile. I always used to watch movies or videos using headphone with full sound . After that incident I used to take that morning dosage also. Anxiety has controlled but still that ringing sound disturbed at some time . Not all time. My question is that ringing sound produced by any ear problem or that anxiety effects. Plz reply fast ly bcoz it affects my concentration Is that ear problem or anxiety effects??
Dr. Vijay Verma
Ear Nose Throat Specialist
See both ear and anxiety issues can cause ringing better get audiometry test if it is normal than ringing is due to anxiety
Having anxiety disorder and depression for the last 4 yrs undergone course for the same but symptoms persist and now having more negative feelings now taking peroxtine release and cloanezapam tablet daily night Suggest cure in homeopath.
Dr. Saurav Arora
Homeopathy
In your case I advise you to visit a homeopathic doctor and take treatment under supervision. In homeopathy symptoms, history and examination is very important. In majority of cases, after a long case taking and case workout, we try to select a constitutional remedy which is used to treat the disease from its root cause. Taking a constitutional treatment shall also take care the reoccurrence of disease.
