My appointment with the 2nd ENT was rather abrupt and loopsided, meaning the doctor wanted to do all the talking and had little patience to hear me out. I was given another audiological exam. My hearing is normal with some minor loss. He felt my TMJ and I said it hurts somewhat. But the TMJ is sensitive anyway so I don't believe it was excessively sensitive. After I mentioned that it was slightly painful he decided I must have TMJ. He gave me a presciption for Campral and Klonopin. I told him I was already on Ativan. He said this was better than Ativan for TMJ. He said he still had a few tricks up his sleeve. The last time I heard that was from a chiropractor. Excuse me, this guy is a physician. The last thing you want to hear is something that David Cooperfield would say. He wants to schedule me for a MRI/MRA to check for a clinical reason for pulsatile t. At least this guy went so far as to have this done. The first ENT did nothing other than a basic exam. This ENT told me he has never had one MRI/MRA come back positive showing a clinical reason for pulsatile t. Has anyone had a MRI/MRA of the head? Did it cause your t to spike? Nobody has been able to tell me yet why I have ear fullness and ear pain yet. Talk about feeling like patient number 888,next.
