: For a couple of months now when its very quiet (usually laying in bed trying to sleep) I'll
: hear a low pitched tone inside my head or inner ear not sure, then it will change to a higher
: pitched tone then back to the lower pitched tone there is no sequence it could be low for
: 5 seconds then high for 2 then low for 1 second and high for 10 seconds and its just the
: 2 tones high and low! I though it might be a piece of electronic equipment in our room but
: I hear it in other places too! Even with plugging my ears I can hear it. The tones are not very
: loud but I can still hear them when its quiet. Any insight as to what this might be would
: be much appreciated.

You have tinnitus. spend some time researching it. you also may be surprised to find you have a loss in hearing. there is no cure for this. i have had tinnitus for a year. certain things make it much worse like aspirn, salt, cafeen and certain medications like 12 hour nose sprays i just found out recently (like Afrin nose spray). I take ginko baloba (herb), watch my diet, and have a cock tail once in a while when it is bad. that is about all you can do. i am hoping someday it resides a little. with some people it does.

good luck,
