This : This sounds alot like tinnitus. This can be caused from a history of loud noise, exposure to particularly toxic medication or medication or with normal aging. The ringing is usually worse in quiet enviroments and better in rooms with a little noise. There is no medication that will make this go away. However there is a little trick which often helps, especially at night. Leave a fan on, or turn your radio on music or white noise real low volume. The noise is usually just enough to be louder than the ringing sound. Your brain will learn to ignore this other more familiar noise, you will sleep better. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have had ringing in my ears for almost 3 weeks now. I been on a lot of meds during this time as well as bad allergies. Will this go away??

Probably: If tinnitus is due to transient conditions such as infection, eustachian tube dysfunction, allergies, it most likely will be transient. With sensorineural hearing loss and long term noise exposure, it may be permanent, however oftentimes may fluctuate. Remember low sodium, low caffeine diet and treat the underlying cause. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello, For the past couple days I have had ringing in my ears and my right ear makes a crackling noise when I move my head around. ET dysfunction?

Eustachian Tube: Could be Eustachian tube. This tube provides a pressure equalizer for the middle ear. If it is closed off the pressure in the middle ear is reduced. Moving, yawning, swallowing may open the tube for a second and air rushes up the tube into the middle ear moving the drum when it arrives. You hear this crackle when the drum moves. It usually resolves on its own. ...Read more

I have constipation, ringing in my ears and chills.  I'm on benadryl, (diphenhydramine) avapro and doxycyline.  Any connections?  If not, what is causing the symptoms?

Go see your doc: Who ever prescribed your antibiotic (doxycycline) should be aware of your concerns. Perhaps your chills are a result of your infection. Depending upon how long you've been taking your antibiotics, your chills should be improving. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) has classic anticholinergic properties which means it can cause constipation, urinary retention, dry mouth & dry eyes. Best to go see your doc. ...Read more

I have ringing in my ear for a month is it something I should worry about ?

I have ringing in my ear for a month is it something I should worry about ?

Compression in tmj: One possible answer for this condition is compression in the jaw joint. As the muscles that opens and closes the jaw becomes too powerful with repetitive motion, the teeth will wear down and cause a vertical loss of height which translates to loss of space in the jaw joint. This can put pressure on the ear canal.A hard plastic occlusal guard can restore the space and working length of the muscles. ...Read more

I am having problem with my blood pressure. At night it increases to 145/95 and at day it is upto 125/85. Also i have ringing in my ear. it is loud.

Your blood: pressure of 145/95 is high, especially at your age. Ringing in your ear is probably not related to hypertension. Hypertension is almost always essential, meaning that there is no identifiable cause. You should however undergo medical evaluation to make sure that you have no reversible causes. ...Read more
