Julia Chang's Herbs gave me Tinnitus (ear ringing)

Hello all,

In short, I took Julia Chang's herbs hoping that it would help alleviate my suspected gallbladder issues but they ended up giving me tinnitus (ear ringing)! Does anyone else have this issue and did anyone find a way to get rid of it?

The longer story is that I was suffering from aches around my upper right abdomen area and middle back area. I had experienced a couple gallbladder attacks and my stools were tan colored and were peppered with what looked like white rice grains which would float in the toilet (the grains tested negative on the ova/ parasite tests, so my doctor suspects them to be undigested fat). I had an ultrasound done and it showed that my gallbladder was "unremarkable" (i.e. no stones or inflammation) so now I suspect I have biliary dyskinesia (I haven't had a HIDA scan yet).

The aches were getting better and my stools were getting to be a darker brown. However, on the second night of taking the herbs I noticed my ears started ringing and I didn't know why. The next night the ringing was still there and I suspected the herbs. I quit the herbs the next day (3 days total taking the herbs) but I still am stuck with ear ringing 6 months later.

I went and saw an ENT. I was given an audiology exam and it said my hearing was normal. So the ENT said that the ringing was not due to hearing loss but he couldn't help me. His advice to me was to stay out of the herbal store.

Can anyone help me?
