Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Also take 50 mg levosynthroid, multivitamins
From this study (1 month ago):
I had sudden reduction in hearing around 6 months ago and intermittent bouts of dizziness.
For the past two weeks I've had increasing dizzy spells and have also developed intermittent facial neuralgia, to the top of my cheek and up to my forehead. First this was on the left but yesterday started on the right. I have also developed 5 cold-sores (both on my upper lip and inside my nostril).
I don't feel particularly unwell other than the obvious symptoms I describe here.
From this study (3 months ago):
Ear congestion in one ear, hearing compromised in that ear and mild ear pain, some dizziness. Several days ago severe vertigo causing throwing up. Vertigo gone now.
