Post Does anybody with hypo have this symptom?

Since I've gone from hypo to hyper and back to hypo, I now have a constant buzzing or humming sound in my ears, kinda like the sound you hear in a seashell. (not ringing) I don't recall having this before. Has anybody else experienced this and does it go away once the thyroid gets leveled out?

I dont have buzzing in my ears but I have had it in the chest area like someone put a vibrator in there. Its not painful, but really makes me wonder what is going on, if when this happens am I in a hyper state although I am hypo.

That type of ear noise, called tinnitus, can be caused by irritation of the cranial nerve. It can take several forms - static, ringing, squealing, wind, etc. I have seen it mentioned in several places in connection to hypo. It's the same sort of complication that causes peripheral nerve irritation in the feet and hands.
I get temporary squealing in one or the other of my ears occasionally. Fortunately, it's always gone away in a short time. Don't know what I'd do if it was constant.

Ringing/buzzing is quite common. I am getting that one lately too, with my thyroid hormone dosage being too low.

Mine's constant for 2 years now. Was hoping it would get better when I did, but no such luck. LOL IWL

Okay, I think I'll blame this symptom on my hyponess then... hopefully it will go away, but I can get used to it if I have too. At least it's not that ringing in the ear that my sister gets!
