For those of you with tinnitus, what do you do for pain relief?

I’ve had pain in my neck hip knee for 6 months and tinnitus for 1 month Gp thinks they’re both arthritis related and I’m going to have to have a hearing test and scan, but I mentioned about the ibuprofen possibly causing the tinnitus and he looked at me like I was mad then said it’s very rare and I should use it but that’s not an issue easy choice when you’re new to tinnitus and it’s driving me mad, in my naivety I’m hoping if I ease up on the pain relief the tinnitus may go away easier said than done I know. Can anyone relate

    Thanks Christine I’ll do that
  • Hi KLT

    I'm not sure what type of arthritis you are managing, whether it's osteoarthritis or another kind, but evidence supports how helpful it is in the management of pain to use self-management for arthritis. Two key steps in self-management include physiotherapy (and keeping moving) as well as healthy eating to keep your weight down.

    If you'd like us to send you out any information, or would like some support on the phone, do get in touch with us at the Helpline 0800 4500 450.

    all the best
