Unhappy Ear Ringing

About a year ago this month - seems as though my ears started ringing - been doing it ever since. I am not around loud noises so I know that's not it. I went to the ENT doctor about 3 or 4 months ago - for hearing tests, etc. He said it was probably tinnitis. Well I don't understand how all of a sudden this starts and never goes away. I did start taking Zoloft last Sept. I believe it was - and thought maybe this was a side effect of that - but the doctor didn't think so - I have tried to back off the zoloft for the last 2 weeks to see - but that ringing is constant - never goes away. It's almost like a high dentist drill the shrill one! I go to bed with it wake up with it. Even if I get up during the night - it's there - the only times my ears used to ring was after being around something loud then it would stop. Some days it feels more unbearable than others! I am so tired of this and don't know what to do!

Re: Ear Ringing

Try manually massaging the ears and the sides of the neck where the ears drain. Use firm downward motions with the thumbs. That will sometimes help when my ears are ringing. Hope this helps. You could also try some warmth on the ears and see if that helps at all.
