Humming noise in head

What is causeing this humming it is driving me crazy. When i strecth or yawn the roaring, ringing and the humming go way up. i aslo get these tones that come and go. then i also have like weird fluctuation that jump from ear to ear it weird it is hard to explain. I need to know what is causing it so i can get it fixed. I am going to the Mayo clinic in jacksonvile but they can't see me till May.For me that is like forever. I am to the end of my rope here. Any information would be GREATLY APPERCIATED.

You have tinnitus, which has a number of causes, including hearing loss itself.  See an ENT specialist for a full exam and audiometry, to start.  Hope this helps. Good luck!
