Hi, i heard ringing sound in my left year about 8 months ago. Now my right ear is blocked, and it will not clear even after i "pinched" my nose. I have already done an MRI on my brain and all looks normal except for an incidental finding of an enlarged cisterna magna. Is this tinnitus?
The ringing sound you hear is called Tinnitus. It occurs with disorders affecting the external, the middle or the inner ear. In the outer ears cerumen impaction or external otitis, in the middle ear fluid collection or disease of the tympanic membrane and in the inner ear damage to the nerve endings can cause tinnitus. As a result of these disorders the external sounds are masked leading to awareness of normal body sounds. The blocked right ear could be due to throat infection blocking the Eustachian tubes. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. he may then refer you to an ENT specialist.
I have exact same thing. Mostly in my L ear. Slight hearing loss as well.
Although I think mine is from taking Metaprolol as it started one week after starting it.
Have been off if it for long time and ringing is still there.
I am taking Lipo Flaviniod, billberry, C and CoQ 10.
I am considering trying the Flonaise spray (nasal steroid) and taking antihistamines?
Think the Flonaise would help????? Maybe it has something to do with tubes?
Playing nature sounds while I go to sleep helps. My "T" is the same frequency as crickets.
