Had cervical neck surgery on C2 thru C4 in February 2011. Left hand got numb about a year later. A local neurologist said I had carpal tunnel and I was operated on in April 2013. No improvement. Had additional neck surgery on C2-C4 in June 2013. No improvement. Could amlodipine besylate 10mg 1/day be causing the problem?
I have been taking high blood pressure medication for over five years. About a year ago my doctor added Losartin/HCTZ 100/12.5 mg to the Carvidilol 12.5 AM/PM daily and Alprazolam .25 mg AM/PM. I had some water retention when I visited him in June 2013. He upped the dosage of Losartin/HCTZ to 100/25 mg. One month later in July, I suffered asymmetrical sensorineural hearing loss in my right ear. I had three week of prednisone treatments, 3 injections and prednisone medication over a three week period. After the first week, the auditory tests showed improvement in my right hear hearing. Then, the next week, it was back to when I first test. It has stayed at this level since. I visited my regular physician three weeks ago, and he added Clonidine .5 mg to my blood pressure medications, as my blood pressure was elevated at the time. All that said, is there a possibility that the increase in the diuretic had something to do with my hearing loss?
