It could be age related, hereditary, or form damage from constant exposure to loud noises (gun fire in the military, loud rock music etc., ) or rarely after some antibiotic use and eustachian tube dysfunction. ...Read more

Probably not.: Tinnitus usually varies in intensity over time and might be improved by some otc supplements (e g arches), prescription meds (e g nortriptyline), and avoiding stress, alcohol, salt, caffeine, and loud noise.

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

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 pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear. I only hear it when I bend my neck a certain way. ENT says my ear is fine. What could cause this?

Need more info plz: When they say that your ear is "fine" does that mean that they checked it simply with an otoscope, made sure you were waxless, and then, sent you on your way? Or did they do some blood work, perhaps an audiogram, and perhaps, an MRI of your brain? Do you have headaches? How old are you, are you fertile, and does your vision dim?
