May be related: These symptoms may be related as the jaw muscles have two small cousins that live in your middle ear. Theses muscles attach to the eardrum and the middle ear bones to protect the ear against loud sounds. When your chewing muscles are angry as they can be in people with jaw problems these muscles can tighten when they shouldn't causing these symptoms. Go on a soft diet for a while see your dentist and an ENT doctor.

Tinnitus: Tinnitus is very common and can have several types of sounds including whistling. An otolaryngologist can examine your ear to determine whether wax accumulation or other treatable disorders are causing your symptoms. If not, there are booklets and various articles on how to cope with chronic tinnitus.

Otitis media: It may be that this is related to middle ear congestion and trying a decongestant would be beneficial. Use Pseudoephedrine or oxymetozline nasal spray and see if this does not resolve the problem. If not, go and get examined by a doctor.

I sometimes hear a whistling sound in my ear. Can I be experiencing auditory hallucinations?

Auditory Hallucin: Auditory hallucinations are perceptions of sounds without identifiable external stimuli. Auditory hallucinations in psychosis are usually formed and complex. A common manifestation is hearing more than one voice that may be talking about you in the third person. Simple unformed auditory hallucinations as you describe are referred to as tinnitus. Check for inner ear disease. I wish you well.

When applying pressure to my ears (closing nose and exhaling) I hear a whistle in my right ear. More pressure, louder whistle. What is happening to me?

Perforation?: If the whistle is longer than momentary, you may have a perforation (hole) in the eardrum of your right ear which is allowing the pressurized air to escape. An ENT doctor would be in a good position to evaluate for this and decide what if any treatment is necessary.

47 year old female, last one week sometimes whistle sound in left ear and leftside head pain and feel swalling around left eyes.?

In one ear--: Most likely a blocked eustacian tube has occurred which can affect hearing. In turn a disorder in the back of your throat could cause this blockage and referred pain to the eye. A nastier possibility is that an abnormal connection has formed between an artery & another adjacent blood vessels (fistula) resulting in excessive blood flow adjacent to the ear and eye.

Hearing test: I suspect you have tinnitis. This can be from fluid behind the ear, hearing loss, ear infection, eustachain tube dysfunction. See your doctor to distinguish the cause because that will determine if there is a treatment.

Need ear irrigation: Sounds like your earwax need to be removed. Your Primary Care Provider may be able to do this. The whistling is from your eustacian tubes opening. See diagram. Hope this helps Dr Z

Earwax in my ear canal. When myself or people talk louder than normal my ear whistles. No hearing loss.?

Earwax: I think its due to the ear wax - attenuating the sounds. I would avoid using Q tips to clean your ears. Your family doctor should be able to flush your ears out if needed and that should take care of the problem. You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax.

Time to see: A specialist. Neurologists and ENT's both deal with ringing in the ears. Make sure you let them know you have a hemangioma on the gum (you might have hemangiomas elsewhere)
