Non Stop RingingAbout three years ago I started noticing that I had ringing in my left ear. It later moved to both ears. Now it is non stop day and night and it is starting to effect my daily life. I really have a hard time hearing what people say and understanding them. It is quit e depressing at times.
It used to be just one tone but in the last 6 months it has turned into several tones. It sounds like the old tv sets used to sound when they were turned on with the sound all the way down but louder.
The other day I lost hearing in my left ear for about ten hours. I was really worried that it would not come back.
Something I am wondering is if other people have experienced something that I think might be related. I can not ever remember having wax in my ears. When I clean my ears with a Q-tip they always come out clean. I think that this has some effect on the health of my ears.
I have always protected (with hearing protection or my hands) my ears when ever there was a chance that I would be exposed to loud noise or sounds. I really do not want to go deaf (who does, really) I love music and the sounds of nature, the wind blowing through the trees on a cool fall day.
Anyone else with Tinnitus have an absence of ear wax?
