High Pitched Sound
Hearing loss: Although the question should more appropriately be what causes tinnitus, the best answer to give you is that in some patients at the beginning of their awareness of the sound in the ear, they become depressed, anxious and unhappy. Tinnitus does not cause anything else. But the presence of tinnitus, particularly, unilateral tinnitus rarely can be associated with an acoustic tumor. ...Read more

Was outside in -10 C. Now left ear rings for as long as a sound is played or spoken. Just certain vocals and high pitched sounds.
I'm experiencing slight sound distortion in my left ear (long term issue). I noticed it because louder high pitched sounds can be painful. What is it?
Are higher frequency noises or lower frequency noises more harmful to your ears? My ears have become sensitive and loud high pitched sounds makes me feel nauseous and like jumping out of my body. Will this get better and what noises should I avoid?
Both: Both high and low frequency noises can be damaging to one's hearing if loud enough, or if exposed to long enough. Haven't seen any research studies comparing each to determine which is more damaging. It's sort of like comparing lemons to limes... hard to find a difference. Anyway, one should wear good hearing protection if exposed to loud noises. For comfort, avoid sounds that sound irritating. ...Read more

I had a TIA on nov 3rd and 10 days after the attack I have a high pitched sound in the right side of my brain, (not ears) is it from medications?
Unusual descript.: A sound "in your brain" can only be one of three things: 1) a true external sound with acoustic interference 2) a miscue of the auditory center within the brain responsible for localization of sound or 3) misplacement of inner narrative (as occurs with schizophrenia). You are likely suffering from #2. Certain meds are known to cause tinnitus or "ringing." please discuss with your doctors. ...Read more

What can cause a swishing sound in ears when hearing high pitched sounds? Ear tests were ok and doc said i just had sensitive ears so should i accept?
May be other entity: There are other "things" that can cause one to hear swishing sounds in the ear so if your doctor has only sent you for audiometry testing you could inquire as to their opinion in performing some other tests to rule out something abnormal within the inner ear or even the neck itself. It is slightly odd that only high pitched sounds seem to trigger the noise though. I'm not sure what that indicates. ...Read more
What is wrong with my ears electronics hurt my ear now? A weak ago i had lots of wax in my ears the doctor cleaned out all the wax i went home now when its quiet i hear a high pitched sound from the television and when its quiet i hear a hissing sound my
If : If the doctors cleaned a large amount of wax out of your ears, you may simply be hearing things you couldn't hear with your ears plugged. I'm not sure what you mean by your ears being sensitive to electronics. If you mean you are hearing more hissing and high pitched sounds, it could just mean you can hear better. If you mean wearing ear buds and earphones hurts, it may be that your ear cartilage is sore from using electronics too much. Sometimes the ear canals can get bruised cleaning wax out of the ears, and that could cause discomfort as well. If the problem is slowly improving, i would wait. If getting worse, return to your doctor, or an ear doctor to have it checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

An airway evaluation may also be recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
