Hi Guys-I am beyond terrified-took some medications for just 20 days and ringing on my right ear got transferred slighlty to my left and now I hear it mostly on right ear and from my head-I can only sleep with a white noise machine and life is slowly becoming unbearable-my work now is greatly getting affected as I can not concentrate from the fear of this not going away I have seen countless doctors, done MRI's, nothing can be found or seen nothing NOTHING all seems normal... its devastating and so scary have had it since about 25th January but stopped all medication on 8th February as had no idea of such a possibility of side effect-HELP HELP.have done every treatment there is, acupuncture etc and there seems to be no improvement with anything. But its not that loud.i.e. in the office the noises from computers etc seem to mask it- I did audioloigical testing and they found It is at the 4KHz frequency-I have no hearing loss or hyperacusis-so could be worse obviously but for me this is too much-worst is in silent environments...will see another ENT tomorrow with my MRI and the only hope I have is when I continue to see doctors-yesterday slept 6 hours with the white noise machine so I can sleep. help guys
