Re: Do i have tinnitus?

I have been hearing this ringing in my ears last few weeks now. I know I have tinnitus. I hope it will stop this noisy in my ear when I get a new digital hearing aids soon.

Re: Do i have tinnitus?

It's possible that your recent illness may have caused your tinnitus. From what I've read it can be caused by a lot of factors (fluid in the ear, tumor, medication. etc.)

I've been dealing with tinnitus for a couple of years now thinking it might be related to a illnesss for which I just underwent surgery for. Unfortunately the tinnitus hasn't cleared up. So now I'm planning on seeing an ENT specialist. Hopefully, he/she will shed some light on my problem.

Sometimes I don't hear it, but that's pretty rare. I found when I touch areas on my scalp the pitch changes.

Re: Do i have tinnitus?

The reason you felt sick could be an attack of Meniere's disease/vertigo. Tinnitus sometimes goes with that. You should see an ENT. Good luck!
