From this study (6 months ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
From this study (1 year ago):
After a 4 month trial of Lumigan, stopped because of onset of bilateral tinnitus and fullness of ears. Started Alphagan and fullness went away but tinnitus persists! ENT said she doesn't see any hearing loss on test and thinks its random. I hold to the fact that it Started with Lumigan and hasn't gone away with Alphagan.. ophthalmologist says its not the drops.....?????
