I have fibromyalgia which I think may cause this problem, as well as I've had a herniated disk operation on my C4-5 area of my neck.
I don't have loud ringing in my ears, but I have it come and go. It is annoying. When I asked my ENT doctor, she said that she didn't know, but that people as they older are more likely to get it. I'm 60 years old. I haven't taken any aspirin or any NSAIDS for 4.5 years since I got kidney failure which rules it out, since it started several years after my stroke and I never had much aspirin in the past. It's also been about 30 years since I listened to any loud noises or music. And the noise isn't bad enough to be menieres. But you should definitely check with an ENT doctor.
I also suffer from the same thing. It's so painful and my ears ring constantly. I did go in to see an Ear Nose & Throat Dr and actually had my hearing tested because all I hear is ringing! She told me there is nothing that you can do to relieve it except try not to think about it. I'm only 31 and I've been dealing with ringing in my ears for the last 20 years. FYI, It has nothing to do with my fibromyalgia. Sorry I didn't have a better answer for you!
Ringing can also come from a nerve too close to a major vessel. A knock in the head or a fall. And nasty things like a benign tumor or the like.
I blew out my right ear from a great concert that my friends insisted we had to be right up front. Speakers were right there.eventually a lore ringing remained. However, after getting hit in a collision it got louder. Now if I run a fever it gets very loud. Have you had your hearing tested lately? A lot of good information can come from that as well.
