I have constant ear ringing is there a cure? It is unbearable

I have constant ear ringing  is there a cure? It is unbearable

No complete cure: Tinnitus is ringing in the ears caused by damage to the hearing nerve. It is typically heard at the frequency of the damage. It is essentially the brain thinking it heard a sound at that frequency when there is no sound. The brain hears it because of the damage and does not always resolve fully. Treatment involves masking the sound or other conservative treatments. Surgery is a last resort. ...Read more

Happiness: If you have had relief of your tinnitus, then I would assume that you would be happy.

I have a sinus infection and there is a clicking noise in my ear, is there anyway to stop this as it is really irritating me and i can not stand it?

Eustachian tube : The tube that allows air to move into the middle ear from your throat is opening and closing creating the noise. It should gradually improve as the swelling in the tube related to the infection deminishes. If you hold your nose and pop your ears it may quit clicking for a while, but it may take a while for it to clear. ...Read more

I have had an inner ear infection and now find myself with tinnitus in one ear.. why is this the case?

Infection irritation: If there is an infection within the middle ear then, the increased pressure in that compartment may be transmitted to the inner ear apparatus which is where the 8th nerve lies. Also, the infectious entity itself may be accessing the inner ear compartment since it's all fluid connected and this may be having a direct toxic effect on the 8th nerve hence, the tinnitus. ...Read more

I have a severe ear pain throuhout my flight journey. I searckhed on internet and found its called: barotitis. Is there any solution for this.

Eustachian tube dyfx: Before you fly, use afrin or a nasal decongestant spray. Take 60 mg of sudafed one hr before flight. Try tp pop your ears in flight as you are ascending and descending and at max altitude. You can also try ear planes which is an ear plug that you buy at the pharmacy and leave in the whole flight. They work but you must leave them in for the whole flight. These are my tricks i tell my ENT patients. ...Read more

Having tinnitus and TMJ is comman at the age of 20..Will my tinnitus ever go or is it is permenent for me?

Depends on the cause: Tinnitus can have multiple causes. The first thing to do is rule out medical causes by seeing and ENT to be sure there is no pathology (probably not, but must be ruled out). Ask the ENT who he/she works with if it is suspected to be a TMJ or other issue and then begin to eliminate the possible causes to find the avenue to take to help manage the situations. Sometimes it doesn't go away. ...Read more

Can you get tinnitus while on Accutane treatment by going to bars/clubs with loud music? or increase the risk of it?

Absolutely!: Just being around loud music will increase your risk of tinnitus -- the loud music can damage (sometimes permanently) the structures in the cochlea (the hearing organ). Accutane can also affect your hearing. I advise staying away from environments with loud noise. If you can't avoid them, talk with your Dr. about noise-protective earplugs. ...Read more
