Ringing in the ears=thyroid problem?

I am on thyroid meds. Occationally during the day my ears will hear ringing. Is this related to the thyroid?

I get ringing in the ears when hypo. Did you have this before starting the thyroid meds?

No, I don't think they did as often as they do now. I thought maybe I was on the verge of getting an ear infection or something ( I work outside all day).
Is Hypo an over or under active thyroid? I was gaining a lot of weight for no reason and when the doc put me on L-thyroxin, I went back to my normal weight.

Hypothyroidism is an underactive thyroid. Hyperthyroidism is an overactive thyroid.

I was hyperthyroid in 2002, but can't remember if my ears were ringing at that time.

You can get ringing in the ear with an ear infection, high bloodpressure and others that I am not familiar with.

Ear ringing is major hypo symptom. Mine went away when my meds were higher and now its back since I'm doing an overhaul. Can't wait till the buzzing in my ears goes away. Talk about annoying!! GRRR.

The ears are effected by the para-sympathetic nerve system...it gets very upset without its thryoid hormone.

I am a medicated hyper- and before I got medicated, buzzing in my ears was a problem. But with being hyper everything is overstimulated. May be a problem for both?
