Wow. That's sounds terrible. I experience this sometimes. Unfortunately all I can do us wait for it to go away. But I have found that if I press in behind my ears it helps some. I hope this helps

I'm sorry you're experiencing that. I get that sometimes. I just have to wait it out.

I have tinnitus since 2009. My ENT doc have me some old hearing aids he has from when people upgraded. He cleans them and gives them to people who don't have the money to get some of there own.

The hearing aids pick up more background noise. It helps drown out somewhat the ringing to make it more barable. It took about 2 to 2 1/2 years but I hardly notice the ringing any more.

He says it's "selective hearing" like people who live next to train tracks don't hear the trains at night or if they have a grand father clock don't hear the chimes all night long. There used to it. "Selective hearing" is just that. The hearing aids picking up more background noise speeds up that process.

I hope that gives you hope... Praying for you and others suffering from tinnitus.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this. I normally covers my ears until I don't hear the ringing anymore. Otherwise I don't know what else to do . Best of luck

Your most welcome Westrengirl. I hope you can get some to start the process.

But a word to the wise!!! Don't use them in a restaurant or durring worthship time at church, etc... Those "loud" times are amplified and can give you one Heck of a headache. Enough to Mack you feel sick!!

Sorry I forgot to mention that in my post...

Mine is a mix of fuzzy sound and a ring. You're not alone.

Tinnitus is sometimes caused by high doses of NSAID S including aspirin. Also it can be caused by deep impacted wax in the middle ear.. You might try the liquid over the counter ear cleaners. It sure cannot hurt to try it. If you are taking NSAID(nonsteriod anti -inflammatory drugs) drugs talk to your doctor and see if there is a different option for you. If you have insurance you should see a Ear nose and throat doctor. I wish you a speedy recovery.

I always have a slight ringing, more of a inner ear hum. But mine is from TMJ jaw joints not aligned. Sometimes I hear grinding too. Night guard sorta helps. Hope you're able to rest.

Joey311 I forgot I was told few years ago that I have Tmj and to do the night guard . I didn't do that because they are so expensive and my insurance won't cover it . Thank you for mentioning it . 😊

I don't know man thing medically but could you possible have a sinus or an ear infection?

You can get bite guards for 20.00 at CVS, Walgreens, Eckerds. Also sporting good stors have them too Acsdemy, Dicks, Bass Pro you get the idea. You put them in hot water then mold them to your teeth. The directions are very clear. It is not as good as the 500.00 on from the dentist but it sure does help.

I use disposable ones from Walgreens called Plaquers.

I found out I clench my teeth at night. Apparently I did it so hard I was breaking off some enamel. The dentist noticed it and I got a splint thing from her. It's made of hard plastic and fits over my two from teeth which holds all of my teeth apart if I clench. It only cost $75.

I often experience that and i don't what causes it.

May 25, 2017 9:10 PM

I never even noticed it but my dentist did. That splint has helped a lot but I notice I still sometimes I wake up clenching on the splint. 😕
