I have had constant high pitched loud ringing in both ears for at least the last 6 months. Sometimes the noise is so loud that I can't hear the TV and have to increase the volume. My family dr examined me in March and found fluid in both ears and prescribed an antibiotic. The school nurse (I'm a teacher) checked twice since and I still have a small amount of fluid and a little wax. I used the earwax remover she suggested but it didn't stop the ringing. Some nights I wake up because my ear feels wet (it isn't) and I have occassional pain in one or both ears. Lately I have difficulty understanding people on the phone otherwise I think my hearing is fine. I'm a 52 year old female. In your opinion, what could be causing the constant ringing? Thank you
