  • Hi myname,

    I have occipital neuralgia (pinched nerve), which causes chronic headaches, 3 herniated C-discs, C-arthritis, a Type II fractured odontoid and tinnitus in both ears. Tinnitus is a symptom of vertebral artery compression which can be caused by neck trauma. I'm looking into that now. Surgery might happen soon for fracture.

    Good Luck,

    Hi grammaof9,

    Same here. No Dr. mentioned that to me either. I have occipital neuralgia due to a nonunion fractured odontoid. While doing research on this I read somewhere that occipital neuralgia can be caused by vertebral artery compression. So I started looking into that. It turns out that a compressed vertebral artery can cause mini-strokes even on an intermittent basis. I think I had a few of them over the years. It usually starts with severe stress which causes headaches, dizziness, and visual disturbances. The last one I had was also accompanied by speech problems.

    Tinnitus is also a symptom:


    You have to be your own Dr. to the extent possible.

    Good luck,

  • Just read thanks so much will look into it.
  • Did read and and husband went to ENT back in 03. From there was seen for yearly visit and had EKG witched showed abnormality. Had to see cardiologists - cardio did angiogram which showed mild cardiomyopathy but no abnonorties other then that. Of course that was big for me since I had brother die at age 21 in early 80's due to that. So his tinnitus was not from the article that I read but he almost wishes it was since his is so bad. On the good side had not been caught early his cardiomyopathy would have been much worse. But going to doc for ears started the whole reason while he went to try and do something. Oh by the way in having blood work done also found Hep C. How about that story. I seem to forget all this dealing with my own situation. And who do you think racks up more medical bills. Of course me and who would have imagined that 10 years later. I hope you have solved your ear problem and good luck to you.
