The ringing in my ears is high pitched, 24/7, and causes shakiness and irritability. It occurs in both ears. I can hear it everywhere I go. I try to mask it in many ways--always a battle that I never win. ENT and family physicians have no answers for me--just "live with it"! If there were a surgical procedure, I would even go that far to solve this daily torment!
Hello..I have the same thing and also have been told to live with it. I find if i keep some noise around me (tv,radio,wave machine) I tend to tolerate it more. If there is silence it seems magnifyed. wish i could give you a solution, but all I can do is tell you that you are not alone. paddyanne47
OMgosh! another me out there searching for an answer to this horrible ordeal. I have that too only I went deaf in the ear that I hear all the Noise in. Sometimes it's ringing, sometimes it sounds like a freight train. Drives me nuts! My doctor told me nothing will help, but an audiologist, said a cholear implant would help it. Now if you can still hear they probably wouldn't do one. I have heard, don't know if it's true, but I'm on Medicare, & if you can hear out of one side they won't pay for it. Isn't that a crock? My husband & I watch two different kinds of TV, & we have a battle of the remotes every night as to who's is loudest because I can'thear over the Noise! If you find something let me know would you please...
Hi everyone who has responded,
I cannot believe this horrible affliction is so prevalent! It's not right that there is no help available! I, too, am on Medicare, and have found out that it does not make a difference whatsoever in finding help! If I ever find relief, I will surely share it with you all. This problem has interferred with all aspects of my life. Sometimes I feel as if I am going to go mad. I have no one in my life to help--those with a partner/husband are so blessed. I have been alone with this loud, obnoxious intruder of ringing in the ear for 20 years! God be with you all.Susan
I have had strong, loud ringing in my ears for 6 months, non stop, 24 hours a day, never stops. Seems worse in my right ear. I have been examined by several doctors and my ears are very clean, no infection, no Tinnitus. I search the internet without finding an answer, like this page. Multiple ring frequencies all at once, all high pitched. I fell in March of 2013 hard, blacked out in the street, woke up bloody with a smashed left hand, run over by a car. I lost most of the use of my left hand. My head was bleeding, etc. Had multiple casts on my left arm and hand. But, I noticed the ringing in my ears, shortly after the accident. I also can not take a deep breath, without feeling my nerves light up from my chest all the way to the tips of my left hand fingers. Like an electric shock, whenever I take a deep breath. I have felt very isolated since the accident, people hear your problems, but the brain, nerves, too complicated for most everyday type doctors. Thank you for your time and blog.
The ringing in your ears is most likely tinnitus. I used to have it only in one ear, but there are many people with it in both. The ringing is soooooooo annoying! Mine was caused by fluid in my ear. Many other causes include lack of sleep, stress, fluid, depression, ear infection, and possibly Meniere's disease (Meniere's disease has many other symptoms, not just the ringing). Hope this helped. Good luck!!!
I have this same problem it seems to be more in my head then ear or ears although I don't specialise in ears or head I can tell you from personal experience and professional experience that getting your mind of it is the only known cure, sorry to be the one to tell you this.
I've lived with it basically my entire life. I was born with no hearing and had surgery at age 5. My hearing goes in and out. I know the feeling and it really sucks but I've got used to it. But when it's quiet it gets really loud and won't hear for 3 hours. When I'm sick I lose my hearing for a while. And I can lose my hearing whenever and never get to hear again. My choice was to live with the ringing in my ears or no hearing.
I didn't realize there were so many people with this problem! I have had ringing in my ears for 20 years and it's multiple tones and it goes from softer ringing to insane loud ringing. The past month it has gotten louder and my hearing is sensitive the louder the ringing is. There are even nights I go to bed with my ears in pain. I got looked at when I was younger and I was also told to live with it. But now that it's getting louder and not going away I am afraid I am going to lose my hearing one day from it. I don't know what to do to fix this. But I am willing to do anything! If I keep soft noise around me I can keep my mind off of it. But with how intense it's been lately I have a hard time not noticing it.
Ouch ..I cant sleep at night .. it's really disturbing. I seem to relate to the problem being more than just an ear problem or should I say the source of the problem is possibly the blood pressure and blood vessels flowing through parts of the brain which results in some things being slightly impaired and unable to function right some chemical imbalance or head trauma or something I'd love a cure myself
I don't know where I read it online and I am trying to find the person who suggested neck exercises to get rid of the "water running in my ears sound". It was suggested to put your hand on your head in the front of your head and push against your hand as hard as you could. Do this on the front, right, left side and back of your head pushing against your hand as hard as you can. Then put your head back as far as you can without your hand and open your mouth wide, Then start moving your head back to the original position puckering your mouth as you move your head back. The person had one other suggestion that I didn't do. They said don't get impatient it takes time! Within 24 hours NO MORE EAR noise. I went to my ENT he prescribed a natural supplement that worked for 24 hours and then the noise came more often and much louder enough to keep me up at night! Please try the exercises they worked for me and I hope they will work for you!
I am 34 y o. I had continuous mild tinitus since more than year. it's so quiet that i couldn't notice but recently. So I was living in the states, then came back home and had a depression. I think also that people back home speak loud and there is noise everywhere. So I think this is related. Because i went to the doctor and he said my ear are well except some air flow problem.
