I've had tinnitus in my left ear off and on for over a year. This latest bout has lasted since December 31 and has been non-stop, except for maybe one or two days scattered here or there.
For the past couple of days, I've noticed it is getting louder and it's kind of echoing too. It sounds like a heart monitor when someone has died (we were watching Grey's Anatomy last night when that sound came on from an expired patient's monitor. I told my husband that is exactly what I hear constantly in my left ear. I think he finally got it!)
Anyway, I saw an ENT back in January or February, but he didn't do anything, just said it was part of whatever neurological problem I have going on. He offered no treatment at all, just told me to come back if it gets worse.
Usually, I can just ignore it or drown it out by turning the TV or my music up louder. But it's really getting on my nerves today (no pun intended!) Is there anything at all that might help besides drowning the sound out? I'm at work and can't do that right now and it's WAY too quite in here!
