hey everyone, for the last 5 days i've had ringing in what appears to be my left ear but may also be my right ear. before they started ringing i had a pulse or popping in my right ear that went away at the onset of the ringing, i've seen my doctor and she took a quick look inside both ears and said my ear drums were bulging and red or dark colored. she said it was allergies and prescribed my a $50.00 nasal spray and claritan, I've taken this spray for two days now and my ears are still ringing just the same, I haven't noticed a change at all... I'm sure most of you are going to say tinnitus, I'm really hoping that's not what it is but my ears have to yet improve. I've read online that many people with tinnitus never get rid of it and there's no cure for it.
I don't understand because I'm 27 and have never had this issue before. I've never been in a car accident or had a neck/head injury that I can recall, however, my neck does snap everytime I turn it, I assume due to my job where I am always having to move my head around in many positions. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
