Question Ringing in Right Ear

I just developed a strange ringing sound in my right ear. I can only hear it when there is little or no background noise, but seems loud when it is completely silent. I can only hear it in my right ear. I reccently caught a cold and had my sinuses blocked up, including pain in my ears from the preasure, which might explain something. About a year ago, the same thing happened. I woke up one morning while i had a cold and could hear a strange ringing in my right ear, but when I woke up the next morning, it was completely gone. The ringing started Oct 13 at 6 PM and it is now Oct 14 at 3:20 PM, so maybe it will be gone by tomorrow. I am only 15 years old. Any information would be great. Thanks for your time.

Thumbs up

Hi Skyler T, I've had a ringing in my right ear for one year and my ENT doctor told me it's fine but if I feel pain or liquid coming out to come back to him. If you still have a pain or ringing you should get it checked out, your too young to be going through this, it better to know what's going on. Hope I could help you in some way, let me know happens, okay! Take care!

Yes. What you are describing is tinnitus. I have had that since i was 12 from damage to the cochlea (muzzle blast). It is very noticable when things are quiet, like nighttime when i am in bed. Many things can cause tinnitus, not just damage from noise. For example, some people get tinnitus after taking asprin. Because it is a blood thinner, it increases blood circulation therefore you hear ringing. Also caffiene can have the same effect. Everyone is different. Yes, a cold can cause that as well. In my opinion, you will want to get it checked out by a doctor just to make sure it is nothing serious

That is GREAT news Skyler! Glad to hear that it was nothing serious. Colds have crazy ways of affecting people. I recently came down with a bad cold and i think it has blocked my ears all up. Times like this i wished my digitals had volume controls, because i can barley hear out of my right ear (which is my better ear).

Take care!
