Dear Doc, I was diagnosed with secondary syphilis at May 13th. Doctor advised me with penicillin shots (for 3 weeks). Soon after, I started my therapy: - May 15 first injection - May 22 second - May 29 third

On May 25th (soon after my second injection) I noticed a slight buzzing in my ears. It's not annoying, I can notice it only when I am in a very quiet room. The last few days I noticed that I cannot pop my ears. I am so scared of neurosyphilis or otosyphilis, since I've read so much about them.

Do you think that they can be related? Please, advice!

All the best!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is very unlikely your symptoms are related after successful treatment.
