I just had a new 'ringing' in my ear. I went to an ear Dr. who suggested an MRI of the brain. I laughed at him and told him I just had an infection. Went to another Dr. who eventually also ordered an MRI. I had a cluster stroke. I had this small group of strokes weeks earlier. Had I gone for the MRI when first ordered I might have saved my hearing but I was smarter than that guy, right? Wrong. If you have the means to have an MRI now do it.
Weeks later i went to a regular doctor and was treated for sinus infection, then back a week later for ear infection and the infection went away but head and ringing is still there, in the following weeks no symptoms changed. I then was sent to get a CT and that came back clean so they sent me to get a MRI done and still no luck. I also tried a Atlas doctor, another chiropractor, ENT doctor, Nurologist, Physical Theripist and all with no luck.
my right ear has been ringing, off and on, all night long.
Hi All, I was just diagnosed with Lyme. Looks like a recent infection. Symptoms have been GI pain, aches, muscle pain, swollen lymph nodes and ear hissing/ringing. Has anyone suffered from ear ringing and lyme? How long before antibiotics help this out? I also have bad allergies, and line in NJ where we are currently in Pollen Hell. I think my allergies make the hissing worse, but the lyme has caused the inflammation. Any thoughts appreciated!
Bruce, I have all of your symptoms and my ear ringing is driving me crazy right now! Its only in my left ear as well and my left eye gets blury...I also have eye floaters? weird. I had joint pain first also and after a ton of testing for autoimmune diseases I was diagnosed with Hashi's a year ago.
are muscle twitches and ringing in the ear symptoms of hiv? i had unprotected sex in august, a negative blood test at 4 and 12 weeks, but i thought i read somewhere that these were symptoms of hiv. if they are symptoms, would they be showing up this early, or are they things that develop with advanced hiv/aids?? given that i have had a negative blood test result in november (at 12 weeks exactly) is it possible for these to be symptoms of hiv?
A couple of months back I had those same symptoms minus the ear infection. I had to get test after test done and they came back negative as well. Then I had to get a scan called the Hiadi (I know I messed that spelling up...lol) come finding my gallbladder had shut down. Since my gallbladder couldn't process food anymore that why I was throwing up and plus my appendix was enlarge. Keep getting tested for everything because it's bound to show up on some test.
It takes some time for me to get rid of the extra mucous production after I've had a sinus infection. As for the ringing in the ears, that depends entirely on the cause. I have permanent ear ringing since many years ago I had a good case of Labyrinthitis. If the ringing goes eventually away with treatment then great, but I think it is one of those things that can stick around too.
If you retain the fluid in your ears, you would have symptoms of muffled hearing, ear pain like an infection, and ear ringing. GERD, believe it or not, can cause some of the ear symptoms as well. I also read that inflammed sinuses can somehow block the eustachain tubes and cause symptoms like this. They say to try a saline nasal spray as this will help with sinuses that are inflammed due to dryness. The spray does seem to help a bit. Good luck.
It started out as a sporadic thing (a few times a day), but by the end of the first week it was almost non-stop. There was not any pain like when you encounter an ear infection, but the ringing became so distracting I went to the doctor. They prescribed amoxycylin but after 4 days the ringing actually became worse. When I tilt my head to either side of the pillow the ringing becomes deafening. I went back and the doctor put me on stronger antibiotics, Augmentin.

I have terrible ringing, hearing problems that have been diagnosed as auto immune ear disease. Have you ever heard of this? Do you suggest trying the recommendations here as a remedy?
I know the ear ringing could be caused from inner ear problems, such as meniere's. And it could also be sinus problems, which I've been having problems with. I would bet it something to do with your sinus's and inner ear. I agree not to jump to Lyme disease, at all.
Hi Alls I'm Saqib from Pakistan. I want to discuss with u my ear problem.

On Monday morning I woke with an ear infection. I went to the doctor right away and was given Otic Edge, told to continue an antibiotic I was already on, to call if it wasn't felling better in a couple of days, and to schedule a recheck for a week later. Thursday, my ear still felt plugged, I was getting sharp pains, and ringing so I went back to the doctor. He said that there is alot of drainage in there and it kinda looked like swimmer's ear.
Have you had a sinus or ear infection recently? Do you have any symptoms of a cold or do you have allergies? Have you had this before? Are your eustacian tubes clogged? Have you tried a decongestant?
This article is aimed at discussing 'how to recognize symptoms of an ear infection'. Things here have been put in a nutshell, making it very much simplified, trying to cover most of the ear problems and at the same time emphasizing on emergencies also. Ear blockage for more than 3-4 days following an attack of cold, associated with or without pain and discharge from the ear warrants a thorough check-up with an immediate intervention.
You don't get ani-fungal drops for a middle ear infection. You get ear drops for an outer ear infection which. The outer involves the Auricle, (ear lobe) & ear canal.
I was diagnosed with a fungal ear infection (tropical ear) today - I have had repeatedly dealt with 'swimmers ear' over the past 3 years, sometimes as often as 3 times per year. I have had severe pain in the affected ear, as well as pain in the temple on the affected side. Starting 2 days ago, the lymph node behind that ear (which has been swollen since Nov. 07) became extremely painful. It's like having cramps in the side of your neck at times. My ENT prescribed ZOTO-HC OTIC SOL.
The next day (Tuesday) i went to the doctors and they diagnosed me with a ear infection and prescribed me Amoxicillin. Now 4 days later. I don't seem to be getting any better and there is a constant ringing and clogged feeling in my ear and i can feel a fluid moving around deep in my ear but there is no pain. I haven't been to any concerts or listened to anything loud recently that maybe would've caused the ringing. Could this be a combo of an ear infection and tinnitus?
Hi, This could be tinnitus. Tinnitus is the sensation of a sound in the ear or head that is not being produced by an external source. Exposure to loud noise at work may also cause tinnitus. If you work with pneumatic drills or in noisy factories, you may be more at risk of having tinnitus.
Would this have any connection to my now having vertigo? I had gone to my GP to make sure it wasn't caused by an inner ear infection, and he said my ears looked normal. This prompted me to call my MS doctor who promptly ordered the solumedrol infusions that I'll be starting Tuesday. Anyway, just wondered if there's any connection with all of this or if anyone else who has experienced vertigo had these symptoms before the vertigo came on?
Symptoms could be caused by hypertension or even something like addisons disease. Worth looking into anyhow.
Talk to your primary care physician. This may be an ear infection.
If you are using head phones or a hands free unit PLEASE STOP NOW. They could be damaging your hearing. My father had ringing in his ear ever since he left the air force. He was told the noise from the airplanes damaged his hearing. For years doctors told him it was tinnitus and there was nothing that could be done about it. Last year I found a hearing lost study and suggested he participate in it and he did.
I ate a strong space cake last weekend (but please let us not discuss the merits of such consumption; I regretted it immediately). At that point I had had an ear infection for about two weeks and was currently undergoing treatment with antibiotics. The thing is, as soon as the space cake took effect my ears began hurting like never before. I lost my balance and threw up, and my tinnitus (which has always been very mild) flared up to an uncomfortably loud level.
I have also had the stabbing pain in my ear that happened in my right ear for more than a week on and off, short bursts of pain (no infection) then it happened in the left ear couple times. As far as the high pitch ringing, I get that too!! First, my ear will go deaf for couple seconds then I get the squealing high pitch. It's so annoying. I absolutely thought that everyone had this happen to them, I never thought this could be something. Is this Tinnitus??
Anxiety or cardiovascular problems can cause the last two, but these would not cause ear pain. Ear pain could be an ear infection, TMJ problem, or something else. Dr. Jimmy is right about the symptoms of Meniere's. Doesn't sound like you have Meniere's at all. Good luck, Nancy T.
