How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Tinnitus is a ringing or other type of noise that seems to originate in the ear or head arising from the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, or by abnormalities in the brain.
Some medications may also be responsible for the noise. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor and to discuss the placement of the shunt for your present condition. Take care and do keep us posted.
