I have like a low humming, feels likes it’s in my head, it’s at around 115hz, when that humming gets louder I know I’m in for a bad time with my left ear which has a extra loud hum on top, this hum is about 125hz and is so loud I can feel it like it’s on my ear drum, it switches on and off like someone playing with a switch, the only way I can stop it is to have continuous sound going into the ear, if sound isn’t quiet loud enough then it will kick in, switching on and off, I have pressure in that ear, pain and when it’s really bad a slight burning feeling inside, all feels like it’s coming from my middle ear.
I’ve had this since January 2016, when I was 36 weeks pregnant and had the worse head cold ever!! Just before this T started, I had a few weeks of where my ears popped and I could hear my own voice loud in my left ear and it wouldn’t pop back, then this stopped and I was left with what I’ve been suffering with now.
I’ve always had what I class as the traditional ringing in my ears ever since I was little, I’m so used to that noise though, as it’s so high pitched, but it doesn’t really bother me. I could even get used to the humming, but this extra loud hum in my left ear is just hell on earth, the fact that when it switches on I can feel it and is so loud, I can not hear quiet noises over it, when it’s off I can hear fine. If I shake my head the humming shakes as well!
I’ve seen many different GP’s none are interested, they look in my ears and say my ear drums look totally fine and no sign of fluid behind the ear drum. I’ve had a course of antibiotics in case it was an infection, no joy either.. I saw a ent around September 2016, problem was I waited so long for a appointment, that when the day came my ear was having a good day, my hearing and pressure tests came back fine.. the ent I saw was not interested at all in my problem, just said it can take ages for a viral infection of the ears to clear up!! And she sent me on my way with no help what’s so ever! Since the birth of my second child in July, my ear is now super bad!!! It’s humming on my ear drum right now as I type! I’m terrified this is getting worse and sound will eventually not stop it, as it’s fighting now with the tv on! When it’s at it’s worse it also floods into my good right ear making that do the same but at a slight higher frequency!! Sob
I’ve had blood taken yesterday to see if something else is causing this problem, as I’ve read so many times that T is a symptom of something, so I’m also waiting now for another ent appointment!!
I also suffer from bad anxiety, have done for the past 13years, panic attacks as well. I’ve bought some cbd oil and I’m about to start trying it, but I’m also worried incase it makes the T worse..
hope to all of us suffering this torture, it’s absolute hell
