Seriously though. I've had this constant ringing in my left ear now that seems to have gotten worse. Is there anything I can do that will either cure it or stop the ringing... or at the very least make it quieter?
#2

Either your amp is too loud that your almost going deaf, or it's not loud enough for you to go deaf so you're stuck somewhere in between.

Not 100% sure, but being slapped on the ears a few times and years of Car Racing may have done that...

I don;t think my amp is the problem... I actually play at moderate voumes (comfortable) and use earplugs when gigging

stop listening to anything loud, i would say stop listening to anything at all if its ringing that bad

just cover both your ears up and wait for them to recover

But it's constant is the problem... I don't think covering my ears would eventually have them heal themselves... It's just my left ear, and who know's how long that could take? In fact, I've really never listned to anything EXTREMLY loud for extended periods of time. The occasional concert or a car race, but that's it!

Learnt about tinnitus for music course health and Safety, maybe go to an ear specialist, bad tinnitus has an immense suicide rate, definitely don't blast your ears if you can help it.

One time I went camping, and my Left ear rang like crazy.

After about a year, it stopped.


It was rad.

It's not bad enough that I can't hear out of my left ear, but it does impede my ability to concentrate sometimes... like when listning to the radio before falling asleep.

I wouldnt call a constant high pitch whine in ONE ear rad. I'd call it annoying

Stop that, it really affects your hearing. It's best to have a very quiet or preferably really low volume of spacey music when you're sleeping. Cause that's the only time that your eyes and ears get a proper rest if you're not sleeping in a warzone.

So yes,stop listening to radio to sleep.

dude, i'd say see a doctor! i've had ringing in my ears before, but only after concerts and such... for you to of had it for so long and not gone crazy is amazing! i nearly went crazy after Maiden cos i coudn't sleep cos of the ringing noise...

but as i said: DOCTOR!!!!
#15
Ive had it for a couple years in my right ear and alittle in my left ear,they dont know what causes it,and the only ways to get rid of it are surgery and acupuncture(which is what i'm gonna try)
#16
aaaaaaaaalright


well tinnitus is caused by the hair cells in your ears being knocked down,because they are knocked down they are touching each other

because of the touching electrical signals are being sent to your brain making a 'phantom noise'
wich is tinnitus :<

there isnt a common-avalible cure

however a university created a sort of pacemaker for your brain
(the lobe of your brain that is overactive is the accoustic lobe)
they implant the electrode on your brain just above your right ear(its just a small hole that they drill) and they implant the electrode
in wich the pacemaker will release mild electric currents(as in the currents emmited by your brain) to soothe the overactive lobe and in this way will soothe the tinnitus

the 'treatment' is still in the experimental phase but it has succesfully been preformed on a woman who had severe tinnitus because of brain damage(the kind usually not able to treat/cure at all)
it was as loud as a busy road
now people with tinnitus all over belgium are wanting to be treated by the university

so in a few years we'll all be walking with strings from our noggins


oh,and you can try ginko-giloba extract and accupuncture
(xcuse me for the crappy spelling)

Go to Wal Mart and get this medicine called 'Ring Relief'.
Seriously.
I have tinnitus and it's a godsend.

tinitus is more of a buzzing than a ringing it could be that you have a perforated ear drum,tht would also explain why its only in one ear.

have you been experiencing itchyness /pain in your ear?

My father has this from having been in choirs and orchestras until he was 30, and like other people said, there isn't a cure. My father has told me that some nights when he can't sleep, he's thought about using a meat-cleaver to crush his skull from the ringing... Pretty metal if I do say so myself, but still not good!

I'm sorry..

RING RELIEF.
Seriously, guys.
It doesn't cure it, but it helps.
It's a little pricey, but IMO worth it.

I have a 99% unused bottle of that stuff sitting in my bathroom drawer. Because, as it turns out, it doesn't help the ringing in your ear when your blood pressure is so high it causes you to go deaf.

TS, go the fuck to the doctor.
