I basically have them same symptoms except no low humming noise.  I have lost some hearing.  I have had this for over 30 yrs. Hydrogen Peroxide seems to only temporarily help.  I have taken high doeses of antibiotics which don't seem to help it.  Feels like there is something in my ears.  Left ear is worse with a lot louder high pitch tone.  Mental confusion, especially in the morning.  Exercise seems to help a lot.

Dr. Clint D. Keifer, Audiologist

Expertise

I am qualified to answer all questions related to the diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment of hearing and balance disorders. This includes evaluation of hearing and balance, counseling, amplification (hearing aids and assistive devices), tinnitus (noises in head) evaluation and management, cochlear implants, and audiology in general.

Experience

I started my career as a hearing instrument specialist (on a trainee license) in 1998. After almost 2 years, I decided that I needed to pursue higher education if I was to provide the best care to hearing impaired patients that I could. In 2007, I completed my Doctor of Audiology and have been providing audiological care for almost 5 years. I have vestibular, cochlear implant, and pediatric experience along with prescribing, fitting, and verification of hearing aid amplification as part of comprehensive hearing loss rehabilitation.
