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!
Does anyone have non-stop ringing in ear(s) for months at a time?

I'm 22, and my right ear has been ringing nonstop for 3 months now. It was really loud and unbearable at first, but it's faint now, and I really only notice it at night when I'm going to bed. My ear was super congested when the ringing first started, and there was some wax build up that my physician took care of, but clearing up both of those issues still left me with the faint ringing. I've done a lot of online research on my own, especially now that my other ear has started to ring here and there. I haven't been back to see my physician yet, though I plan on it in the future since I get brief flashes of ear pain with the ringing. Finding this thread relieved a lot of anxiety I have about it, though I'm sad to see so many of us living with this.
Also, I don't know if this will help any of you that have trouble sleeping with the ringing, but I've found that I'm able to sleep normally with white noise! I have an air cleaner in my room, so it keeps me from focusing on my ear ringing when I'm trying to sleep.
32, ringing for 4 months that just gets worse and also pain and pressure from time to time but the ringing is 24/7 and give me anxiety at night because of how I can’t sleep. Doctor prescribed me Zoloft but hers certain meds can make it worse so I haven’t started the Zoloft. It’s scary and annoying but I’m glad I’m not alone.
I'm so glad I came across this thread, I've been really worried something is seriously wrong and I'm on a massive waiting list for an MRI, which seems ridiculous if it is something serious because a lot can happen in that amount of time.
I've had really intense ringing in my ears for 4 months now and if anything it's getting worse. I used to get dizzy and light headed at first too and then that escalated to a sudden episode of vertigo which was just awful but luckily I've not felt that again since. I saw an ENT who gave me a course of steroids and Urea crystals to try but they did nothing. Very reassuring to see I'm not alone though but it's also a bit depressing and worrying to see people on here that's had to live with it for 20 years plus. But just knowing other people know what it's like makes it less lonely.
Sometimes it's so frustrating dealing with nurses and people who think it's just a ringing every so often, they don't know what it's like to have it 24/7 non stop. Going to sleep with that constant noise. I hope there's some medical progress on it soon. At least a real diagnosis.
Thanks a lot ,cause I have lived with it for like 15 years. YES BELIEVE IT
I'm 35 and for the past 2 months straight I been dealing with none stop ringing in my ears I came here for solutions and answers but I see I'm not alone I thought I had maybe something unusual going on but from the looks of the comments wow well I made a appointment to the ear doctor maybe they could give me some type of closure to this continuous ringing that really is starting to become irritating.
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.
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!
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 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.
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 have that and it also sends me into panic attacks
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.
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 the same problem. Although frowned apon, smoking marijuana almost always stops it for the day, at least.
