Possibly: Tinnitus in ears are usually related to hearing lost. Fluid in middle ear will amplifly the ringing. If the fluid is persistent and did not respond to medical treatment, placement of an ear tube will decrease tinnitus and also improve your hearing in that ear. ...Read more

Need more info: There is no surgery for tinnitus unless the tinnitus is caused by otitis media (fluid behind the ear drum). Other than an exam under a microscope, the best way to check is with a tympanogram. The tympanogram should not be inconclusive - fluid should register as a type b. If you have a type b tympanogram with fluid behind the ear drum, then a myringtomomy may help. ...Read more

You need to tell your doctor about this -- s/he may be concentrating on your depression or anxiety and not "hearing" your concerns about tinnitus. ...Read more

Pop Pop Fizz Fizz...: "There's more than meets the eye" -anon (and a feeble mind, I might add). OK so it looks OK. You probably need a test to measure the reactivity of your inner ear structures as well as how your ear drum is functioning ("Tympanometry"). These help measure the pressures, etc inside that may be causing your symptoms. Go see an ENT doc or Audiologist. And take care if you fly or drive to altitude. ...Read more

see ENT: I would agree with what others have said and really emphasize that you should have your ears looked at by an ENT to make sure it is just wet ear wax. Especially with a history of ear tubes, having any ear drainage is important to have evaluated. ...Read more

You : You need to be re-evaluated by your doctor for this. Any complaint can be very serious during pregnancy, and head pain for two weeks needs to be evaluated. Please call your doctor.
