    Help please!

    Hi everyone,

    Question re Tinnitus....

    I have had for the past 5 days episodes of low rumbling/vibrating in my left ear - sounds exactly like a car engine running. It has been on and off lasting for several hours at a time and then going back to normal.

    Saw GP yesterday and she said Tinnitus, but im not convinced - during the periods of vibrating if I talk, or if there is an outside noise ie someone else talking or the tv is on then the sensation stops. This isn't just me being distracted by another noise, the vibrating literally stops, I can feel it. But then it restarts as soon as I am quiet and still.

    My question is can this happen with tinnitus? Can tinnitus stop when there is an outside noise only to immediately come back? I always thought of tinnitus as a high pitched noise that was constant.

    Would really appreciate any info that anyone can provide.

    Thank you!

    Hi. I've had a lot of ear problems, and multiple surgeries...4 tympanoplasties. I think what you're experiencing could be a form of tinnitus. I've experienced the same thing while recovering from surgery. To be sure, I would see an ENT.
