Okay, I am going to go out on limb here and sound like a nut on the off chance that this may be happening to other members as well. Either way, this is happening to me and maybe someone will have a suggestion if anything.

Please take note now that I have been to a doctor and my ears are fine from a medical point of view. Hopefully saying this now will stop repetitive post of see your doctor it may be this that or the other. I have covered this base very well.

Now then, the problem. Obviously I am suffering from the ringing in my ears. I have posted on threads here in the past when it has come up along with others.

Trying to describe it is like having a very subtle tuning fork going off in your ear or head on a regular bases. I'm sure other members that suffer from this know what I mean.

The thing is I am used to that as I have had it pretty much all my life. The last few months though, it has amped up. It is stronger, a little louder, and there is almost like a pressure to the sound if that makes sense. The tones seem to vibrate more and change key in sound. It is hard to describe the pressure but it is there.

So, the question is, anyone else having this problem or noticed a change like a frequency(?) change or something other then what they have been used too? Almost feels like a radio bombardment without the music.

Holy cow....I am so glad you posted this! My wife and I just started having this issue about two weeks ago. It is a ringing in our ears like we just went to a concert or something (which we have not).

I didn't want to bring it up to her because I thought she would think I was crazy but I finally did after about three days....she responded that she was concerned but thought it would go away.

Several days later she also started having ringing in her ears. It is constant....doesn't matter what time of day or what activity.

I was going to post a thread about it but I am glad you did.'

We are in North Idaho by the way.....it may matter....may not.

Congratulations.

You've discovered Tinnitus.

Tinnitus /ˈtɪnɪtəs/ or /tɪˈnaɪtəs/; from the Latin word tinnītus meaning "ringing" is the perception of sound within the human ear (ringing of the ears) when no actual sound is present. Despite the origin of the name, "ringing" is only one of many sounds the person may perceive.

Tinnitus is not a disease, but a condition that can result from a wide range of underlying causes. The most common cause is noise-induced hearing loss. Other causes include: neurological damage (multiple sclerosis), ear infections, oxidative stress, emotional stress, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, wax build-up, and exposure to loud sounds. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines may cause tinnitus as well. Tinnitus may be an accompaniment of sensorineural hearing loss or congenital hearing loss, or it may be observed as a side effect of certain medications (ototoxic tinnitus).

Tinnitus is usually a subjective phenomenon, such that it cannot be objectively measured. The condition is often rated clinically on a simple scale from "slight" to "catastrophic" according to the difficulties it imposes, such as interference with sleep, quiet activities, and normal daily activities.
If there is an underlying cause, treating it may lead to improvements.[4] Otherwise typically management involves talk therapy. As of 2013, there are no effective medications. It is common, affecting about 10-15% of people. Most however tolerate it well with it being only a significant problem in 1-2% of people


Nothing magical is going on, unless we're talking about the miraculous magical mysteries of biology.

Yeah but the OP stated that none of these are issues.....and I don't think they are issues for my wife and I either.

It's called tinnitus and may not have anything to do with the ears . It can be high blood pressure. From being at a higher altitude. Like mountains, air travel. Feeling faint or nauseous can bring it on.

I used to get it a lot. It can get really loud and annoying.

There's no conspiracy LOL it's just tinnitus like the other poster said, I have had it in my right ear for years from a job I had years ago working in a noisy environment, I find it's not to bad in the summer I hardly even notice it however in the winter months it seems the cold amplifies it.

I've been having it happen on a regular basis since the middle of last year. I must be getting use to it because I just noticed the ringing now since I read the article and was reminded.

I suppose I should have been clear that I made sure I was checked for tinnitus. I knew that would happen. We can rule that out.
Glad to hear someone else is experiencing this as well ,but not glad you have too. Thanks for replying. I'm in Rhode Island so not sure if geography has anything to do with it. Guess we will have to see if it is happening to any others.

I was just looking into this a week ago. Over 250 medications list tinnitus as a common side effect of usage including aspirin, other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn) and anti-biotics. One of the most common causes of tinnitus is due to inflammation and poor circulation within the inner ear. This is most commonly caused by a toxic and deficient diet and lifestyle.
I hope this helps

I really wasn't wanting to go into my whole health history, but suffice to say, I have been on a very healthy diet as of late, I do not take pills, and again I have been checked for tinnitus, all clear there.

As I mentioned in original post, I have had this pretty much my whole life. It is just as of late that is has really "amped" up for lack of better way to say it. Was at my doctors today and needless to say, they are a bit clueless as well as they know my history.

This will sound crazy, but would it even be possible to hear radio waves while not hearing music or what have you? Last couple weeks for some a few months for me now. Curious. Hope more respond that may be experiencing this.

For those that responded to having this themselves that last couple weeks, do you also feel a pressure of sorts?

i've had it for about a year now. it's not tinnitus. i have tinnitus, but this is different. when it began, it came on all of a sudden and other odd things started to happen too.
it's important not to panic or worry, but to relax and look to your inner self.

I am careful not to turn my amps to high, wear ear protection always listening to live music and playing drums. Keep headphone levels in check while wearing. Also heavy equipment and non heavy, protect your ears.

Have not noticed any pattern with individuals. Have it checked out.

Unless everyone around you and in your local area is hearing this high pitched noise, How can you say it is not tinnitus. Tinnitus is when you hear a high pitch noise in your ears. If the pitch, loudness can be found and masked. It very well could be. Just because you do not take pills and eat well does not mean you can not have a deficient diet. Obviously we don't have time to go into every thing you consume but you can try changing your lifestyle to see if it helps before dismissing it. Doctors are not always accurate with a diagnosis

I have noticed that many times here on ATS folks have mentioned ringing in an ear or both ears. On the surface, it seems like a lot of people out of a small population that have such a "condition" that is referred to as tinnitus.

I developed ringing in my left ear several years ago. Drove me nuts at first. Then, I sort of got used to it, and it also sort of quieted to a level that was tolerable (I guess).

Then the right ear started last year, with very low tones, so real and not ringing that I'd often get up and look out the window at night to see if there was a truck or plane or something rumbling by, just to realize it was my ear (or head). It is intermittent. Occasional ringing in both ears.

But the other night, it felt like someone turned up the volume and pressure to some insane level. It was weird and disturbing. I instinctively reached for my "third eye" area of my forehead, and pressed my finger against it. It somehow relieved the pressure and made the sound lessen or be tolerable again. I kept thinking how odd this whole thing was.

Was going to write about it but figured I would get the usual tinnitus definitions.

Btw - my hearing is perfect, I've had two indepth hearing tests and have gone to the specialist. No loud music, loud machinery in my past. Don't use any medicines, not even otc.

Not saying it's anything but physical, but sometimes it seems so odd, like the other night. I felt like I was getting "microwaved" or blasted with waves of vibration or something.

I wonder if the percentage of the average population vs the percentage of ATS-ers with ringing are the same or different.

It could be inner ear hair loss and/or damage to your internal ear functions.
I suffer from the same at times. Or so they say.

But it has increased dramatically since I installed WiFi.
Which is really troublesome because of the convenience of this tech.
I enjoy the practicality as well.

Unfortunately, I can hear it and it gives me headaches.

I feel it creates an unnatural and sterilizing atmosphere.

That is my personal opinion only as it affects my biology and electrical field.

If you think you have an ear infection, try this age old,tried and true cure:

Place a small wad of pure cotton in the affected ear.
Turn your head sideways, and allow an assistant to put one or two drops of Gin
on the cotton. Do this twice a day,changing the cotton once per day.
By no means allow any water to enter
your ear when bathing or showering.

Cure should be felt in 3 to 5 days.

Notice: The above is only intended as personal advise, not as Medical Treatment.

Best to You, Wildmanimal

I developed tinnitus several years ago, and the doctors could find no cause. It lasted for several month, until one day I refilled a prescription I was on for asthma/allergies. There in the fine print,it said a very rare side effect was tinnitus. Stopped the pills, and the ringing stopped.

I have had ringing in my ears on occasion, and it is different that the tinnitus I experienced. Around Christmas time I would hear a high pitched ringing that sounded like Morse Code. It lasted about a week.

Don't saying or implying it's anything unexplainable; I don't know what causes these sounds. Could be the definition and description of tinnitus needs to be revised, for all I know.

There are a lot of things that can cause tinnitis. It can be from problems in the ear to problems in the auditory part of the brain. If it is in the ears, it usually starts on one side.

For the ear tinnitis, the medicine can work. For causes in the brain it doesn't work so well. Some of the posts above deal with this. Increasing foods containing niacin can often help. Eat a taco, hot sauce contains niacin. N-acetyl cysteine is a nitrogen molecule that moderates neural activity along with protecting cells. It is very heat liable, falling apart at below 120 degrees F. Nitrogen is a nervine which can have both exiting properties or doping qualities on nerves. So nicotinic acid can sometimes help to get rid of the noise. It does dampen the hearing though, this is because it overloads circuits sometimes and dampens them temporarily. I tried nicotinic acid for my noise, but chicken soup works better. The NAC works too, but I am not one for taking pills if I don't have to, I would rather eat rare hamburger or chicken soup containing cabbage, onions, garlic, and about five drops of tabasco in a good size pot to get the job done.

Also, potatoes lessen the noise, especially sliced and sauteed with onions and a little lawrys garlic salt. There is a chemical in potatoes that can dampen the senses a little. The chemical Scopolamine in potatoes is the one that controls vertigo and has some anticholorineagenic properties....

I have TLE, that is when my noise started, it is different for different people. I can judge the state of my epilepsy with the noise. Sugars make the noise louder. It gets worse around fluorescent lights also. Hearing increases sometimes if the brain's filters are the cause.

I love reading your posts; you're always so well informed, and you share in a way people can understand! I learn something new every time you show up.


I know the brain can cause some pretty strange things when it malfunctions. I have 'silent migraines' that manifest in some pretty odd ways. It took me a few years to actually believe a person could have a no-pain migraine!


Maybe a malfunction in the brain can cause tinnitus with different kinds of symptoms; I don't know. I just know it's not 'all in y head'!
