Not seen my doctor yet about the tinnitus
Expert:  KemalG replied 14 days ago.

You have a number of symptoms. Symptoms of tinnitus and dizziness can be concerning although they could be related to the epilepsy or your medications if you are on any.

I suggest that you contact your GP for an assessment and to consider a head scan to ensure everything is fine.

You may also need to be referred to ENT for further assessment.

Your GP can look into common causes of tinnitus such as ear problems, diabetes, medications, etc.
