I had no idea that tinging of the ear maybe part of MS. For years I had like roaring sounds or chirping sounds etc and always thought it to be from my allergies. I will definately mention this to my PC nx wk and to my neru, am scheduled for the upper body nerve test, just had the lower done last month. I also have a severe hearing prob that has gotten worse over the last few years. I think it's time to trade me in hahaha.
Carla, allergies CAN cause hearing problems, including tinnitus. Like with everything else with MS, common causes of problems -- like allergies affecting your hearing -- have to be ruled OUT, before settling on "that's happening because you have MS".
But MS obviously does affect the ability of nerves to transmit signals, and hearing is one of those signals that can be affected by lesions in the brain.
