Take this with a pinch of salt...
As far as I can gather, if the noise is uncomfortable, it's probably physical i.e. something diagnosable like Tinnitus.
However, I have had what I used to call "white noise", I've even had dreams where the noise manifests in a visual way, very wierd, hard to explain.
Anyway, the noise can get extreme but at no point ever is it uncomfortable, it could be very loud for periods of time but it doesn't hurt or
interfere with anything I'm doing, even sleeping or trying to sleep. I actually kinda like it.
My point is that I no longer associate the "noise" with hearing or the ears. It is inside, in the head, again, very hard to explain, I think it is
worth establishing where the noise actually manifests i.e. Are you sure it's the ears? (I think I know what it is, but I don't really...lol).
Perhaps this is not the same thing, I don't know...just my 2 Cents...and you'd probably get change!
