Loud squeaking noise

I have had, for about six weeks, a loud squeking noise mostly in my left ear. I have seen Gps and been given a beclometasone dipropionate spray and antibiotics but it hasn't helped. I'm pretty sure it is related to the eustachian tubes. I have ENT appointment but not until the 1st of May 2013. By packing my ears with cotton wool I can reduce the volume of the squeaking to manageable proportions but that is inconvenient in lots of ways. When I go outside it seems to go away and when indoors its much louder in a smaller space ie bathroom or staircase as though the sound is bouncing off the walls and then back to my eardrums.

Has anyone had anything similar and more importantly got rid of it?

Re: Loud squeaking noise

Hi domino,
This sounds very much like Tinitus which can occur as many different sounds and can be in one ear or both.
I have suffered from this for most of my life and yes it will go. Mine will dissapear for months on end and then return sometimes for a reason other times no reason.
Have you had a cold recently or been in contact with very loud noise, even flying will set it of.
Your ENT Dr will confirm if it is Tinitus and unfortunately there is not much treatment for it.
It could of course be some other problem and that's why you are being reffered to ENT.
It is possible you may get an earlier appointment by ringing the ENT dept of your hospital to see if they have a cancelation.
In the meantime I wish you well,

Solofelix.
