Hey everyone, just this week my ears have started ringing and I've begun to be more sensitive to noise. The ringing is worse when there's noise around, especially when I have headphones on. Also for some reason whenever I talk for more than a few sentences my ears will 'click' when I stop. It just kind of feels like static in my head. My neurologist couldn't help and finally decided that Lyme's was a strong possibility so I'm making an appointment with an LLMD, but I have a bit of a wait and I was wondering if any of you guys could help me find a treatment in the meantime.

My other symptoms have been more manageable but these new hearing issues have been particularly distressing, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know of no quick fixes. Rest somewhat assured that youi are far from alone.

Many, many posts on this the last five years.

My ear noise and hearth thumping feel in ear went away with abx, as it does with most people.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Did I mention Hashimoto sucks?

Ok thanks. Well I'm glad there's a good chance it'll go away with treatment! Just have to find a LLMD who can see me in a reasonable amount of time. As long as I know it'll probably get better down the line I can deal with it.

It is a miserable symptom to deal with. I still am dealing with the ringing but it is not as severe. I also had a constant water in the ears feeling. That has resolved.
