What I hear is one of the higher pitch tones they use for a hearing test. Usually in my right ear, but more recently now in my left. It seems this
happens at least once a day while I'm awake. I couldn't say if it does while I'm sleeping though.
There was a time a few years ago that I would hear a more constant noise and had to have the fan and music on to help drown it out so I could sleep.
The noise was very similar to what you might hear being under water, which I think is related to the sinuses and pressure on our head and effecting
hearing like when you hold your breath and force the air similar to a stifled sneeze or higher altitudes such as flying in a plane or jet.
I sometimes use a Q-tip to clean out my ears after a shower and have noticed the ear canal was tighter. So, this could be the tinnitis and or
I've noticed a high pitch sound that comes from my refrigerator, which is the compressor and refrigerant/expansion lines, similar to a whistle.
I used to hear what sounded like a talk show or constant conversation, such as on a TV talk show and realized the noise was coming from the
refrigerator and stopped when I unplugged it.
For all we know, we might be hearing our blood pressure in our head.
