The Ears Ring And The Limbs Twitch Frequently?
Noon nMy ears have been ringing for 9 months nWhen I went to the ENT doctor and checked my ears were not blocked by anything nThe doctor said that maybe because of lack of blood and low blood pressure because my blood pressure is always low nBut it’s been about 3 months now, my limbs too often twitching, sometimes on the eyelids, thighs, or hands nWhat is the disease? nIs there a connection between ringing in the ears and twitching in the limbs
Complaints of twitching / fasciculation are a condition of involuntary contractions of the body muscles. The contraction of the muscles is related to the flow of electricity to the nerve fibers which then causes small contractions to feel as a twitch.
Twitching can be caused by muscle fatigue after over-activity, muscle tension, being stressed and anxious, dehydration, nutritional problems, electrolyte disturbances, side effects of certain drugs, consumption of alcohol and excess caffeine.
But apart from that, twitching can also be a symptom of other diseases such as nerve injury and damage, autoimmune disease, amyotophic lateral sclerosis, progressive muscular atrophy, progressive bulbar palsy, and hernia nucleus pulposus.
Generally, twitch complaints can get better on their own as long as they are not caused by the underlying disease above. Twitching isn't always directly related to ringing in the ears either. In the meantime you can try to do the following tips:
Get enough rest Warm up and cool down during exercise Relaxation Consume healthy and nutritious food Drink lots of water Reduce coffee consumption Avoid alcoholic drinks Avoid too heavy activity Manage stress well If you feel twitching is getting more annoying, you should check with your doctor directly so you can do it further examination to determine the cause and you can be given further treatment that is more maximal. As for ringing ears, if you still experience it often, it doesn't hurt if you return to the ENT doctor who previously examined you or you can also seek a second opinion from another ENT doctor.
