My ear and weird noises? - April 2nd 2009, 09:59 AM

So, my ear has been making a weird noise all night. I kind of just thought that maybe it was being a bit twitchy and the noise was coming from that cause it's my ear but I've been to sleep and it hasn't gone when I just assumed it would. I can't describe the noise, it sometimes stops for a while and then others it just keeps happening, it's like doing stuff triggers it like when I closed my eyes last night it got faster and when I opened them it stopped sorta thing, could be nothing relating to it but that's what seem to happen. I did go to a concert on Tuesday and my ears did hurt a bit during one of the bands and I felt sick, I did listen to my music loud with headphones on as well yesterday but they didn't hurt then although there has been times when they have so I've stopped listening to music.

I spoke to my mum and she said it could be related to a cold I had but I only remember having a cold weeks ago and this came on last night. Or it could be that when I cleaned them yesterday, I poked them a little too hard but that was yesterday lunch time and it came on at 2 at night and hasn't stopped, it seems random that it came on at such a random time if I did poke them a little too hard, I'd have thought it would have come on then?

What could it be? It's really irritating

Buzzing or ringing sounds in your ears is called Tinnitus. Here are some of the things that cause Tinnitus to occur:

Anything, such as wax or a foreign body in the external ear, that blocks these background sounds will cause us to be more aware of our own head sounds. Fluid, infection, or disease of the middle ear bones or ear drum (tympanic membrane) can also cause tinnitus.

One of the most common causes of tinnitus is damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Advancing age is generally accompanied by a certain amount of hearing nerve impairment, and consequently tinnitus. Today, loud noise exposure is a very common cause of tinnitus, and it often damages hearing as well. Unfortunately, many people are unconcerned about the harmful effects of excessively loud noise, firearms, and high intensity music. Some medications (for example, aspirin) and other diseases of the inner ear (Meniere's syndrome) can cause tinnitus. Tinnitus can in very rare situations be a symptom of such serious problems as an aneurysm or a brain tumor (acoustic tumor).
It is possible that you have an ear infection or you could have even damaged your hearing. On the other hand, this could potentially be a symptom of a more serious condition. Are you having any other physical symptoms? I think it would be best to visit a doctor if this continues because its best to get to the bottom of something like this as soon as possible. Many medications can cause tinnitus (I've actually experienced it myself as a medication side effect). Have you started any new medications recently? If so you should find out if this is a possible side effect and if it is really bothersome talk to your doctor about other medication options. I hope nothing serious is going on. I recommend staying away from load noises for the time being because if you have damaged your hearing you don't want to damage it any further. Talk to your doctor and figure this out. Until then try and ignore it as best you can. Maybe playing soft background music would help. I hope you feel better soon. Take care.

Lots of love <3
