When I have anxiety really bad- my ears are greatly affected. I get the ringing. The only thing I can suggest, is what I do. When I am going to sleep I leave my tv on- this way I dont just hear the ringing and high pitch noises. It is so much easier to fall asleep. Even when I am on the computer, I will have to tv or radio going- just on low enough so I dont notice my ears. I hope this helps!!
I've had ear ringing, especially lately when I go to bed. I read to help myself fall asleep and to distract me from it. I've had suggestions like getting a fan or fish tank........the white noise is soothing and distracting. Sort of works for me like the elastic on my wrist.
I have had ringing in my ears off and on for 11 months from taking one 10mg lexapro. It is an adverse reaction to the drug. I assume my neurons get too much serotonin or something. Stay away from ALL SSRI's and anti-depressants! BAD STUFF!!!
i have read that a lack of serotnin can cause ear ringing. there actually have been studies showing that people who are depressed/anxious stressed have ear ringing a friend of mine had horrible ringing in both ears. he went on paxil and it has gone away. another frien gets severe ringing when she has panic attacks. but as soon as the attacks go away ear ringing stops. there definitely is a correlation between depression anxiety states and ear ringing in a percentage of people
