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.
My balance is off, I have double vision, and I keep hearing really high pitched sound in my ears. What can I do?
Diplopia tinnitus: The inner ear affects balance and visual coordination. When it malfunctions tinnitus (high pitched ringing in the ear (s) is a common accompaniment. If available, you should consult with a neuro-otologist who can sort this out. Otherwise an otolaryngologist can be very important (ent doctor). Do this soon as hearing can be affected.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Had a large pop and then really high pitched whining in ear that woke me up last night. Currently dizzy, echo in ears, 96.3 temp, sounds intensified.
Get checked: This could represent a spontaneous (versus traumatic) rupture of your eardrum. Please go get this checked by your doc tomorrow or very soon. Be well!
Ear pain: Intratympanic muscles are contracting to protect the ear from noise. These stretch or tense the eardrum which activates receptor pain fibers. Best to use ear plugs or a headset if such exposure is anticipated. Headache caused by muscle tension or splinting.
I had high pitched ringing and blood rushing sound in ears for years? Is this impending brain aneurysm?!
Do I have tinnitus? Often I get a noise in my ears, but it is a low "wa wa" sound that reverberates when other people talk, not a high pitched ringing.
Can a wax blockage in your ear cause a high pitched ringing only during loud noises, as well as being sensitive to sounds? I've had a partially blocked ear all day, it got worse when I itched it and pushed more wax in. Is this common with blockages?
Yes, medical eval: Needed. You may have wax touching your eardrum causing the ringing, or you may have damaged your eardrum when manipulating the wax. Evaluation by a medical professional is advisable. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
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.See 1 more doctor answer

Tinnitus: High pitched ringing is tinnitus, a sensation created by the brain when insufficient or abnormal signal sent from the ear (like phantom leg syndrome). It is experienced by persons with normal hearing exposed to silence. It persists after severing the auditory nerve. If occurring less than 3 weeks and stable, then suspect noise exposure, head trauma, wax, medication side effect, infection, TMJ.
I have a high pitch sound in my left ear. I'm getting over a cold and I have terrible ringing in just my left ear. Will it go away on its own?
Possible: Unusual for viral illness to cause unilateral ear ringing (tinnitus), but some of the meds taken for a cold more often can cause tinnitus (eg NSAIDS or antibiotics). Even excessive earwax and eardrum irritation can result in ringing. There are many other potential causes, which warrants discussion with a physician. Rarely, unilateral tinnitus can be due to tumor or blood vessel problem.
