    I have had ringing in the ears for years now and recently it has gotten worse.

    I was thinking that it might be from yeast. I was just put on nystatin tablets for it and for some reason the ringing got worse(along with other yeast problems :(

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Tammmy

    i've had that off and on for about a week,
    i don't know where it came from,
    it just happened suddenly =[.

    i'd like to know what to do about it, too.
    i couldn't find anything that would make it go away.

    let me know if you find anything that works =\.

    Tammy,

    I have had this for many years along with pressure like pain in the back of my head, almost to my neck.My neck and shoulders hurt alot also too. I almost feel like I have pressure in the back of my head, almost to the neck area (in the back). It seems to me that MAY be caused from swollen noes in that area that I'm pretty sure are there from pictures I have seen. A couple of times I mentioned it to the docs and they either didn't say or do anything about it or agreed that it could be that!!

    Hopefully I will get some answers to this when I finally go to my rheumatologist and getted dxed after like 20 years or so.

    Let me know if you find any more about this. I will oif I do.

    Hugs and smiles,

    Marilyn

    I didn't take it for that but when I did take it, it relieved a lot of symptoms associated with the slight state of seizure which can also cause insomnia, anxiety/panic attacks, sensory overload, muscle spasms, and RLS.

    I have posted Dr. Cheney's article on the seizure state and Klonopin many times here or you can find it in the Library here. Do a search on Cheney and it will list his articles. The one on the 3rd page on Klonopin is the full article. It's very informative whether or not one decides to take Klonopin.

    Love, Mikie

    Aspirin products can cause ringing in the ears. Thought I would mention that, just in case you are taking aspirin. I use to have ringing in my ears a lot until I learned of the aspirin. I quit taking it and the ringing stopped. Good luck.

    Brain tumors can cause ringing in the ears, although it is rare. Have you seen a Ear, Nose, and throat specialist to make sure there is not a more serious problem?

    I have found that Ginko Biloba at least twice a day to be the most helpful for my tinnitus. It doesn't make it go away completely, but reduces the volume.

    Ringing in the ears can also be caused by hearing loss. I have hearing loss and used to have the ringing. My audiologist thinks I no longer have the ringing because I wear a tooth guard at night since I grind my teeth. She said once in awhile wearing the tooth guard will get rid of the ringing. I'm just glad it's gone since it is so annoying.

    I had this symptom for many years. Totally changed my diet and it finally went away (took some time). See my profile. It is a common toxic response and it is likely you are consuming something that will cause it. Treat the root cause, not the symptom.

    Good luck!

    Hi,
    I heard from a friend and read about a supplement called lipoflavinoid that helps with rininging in the ears. It might be worth checking into. I feel for you all. It must be an awful feeling.

    Tried many things to no avail..When I'm in a noisy place, I know my tinnitus will be worse for about a week..I try to avoid those situations, but isn't always possible. And it's always worse during allergy seasons. (spring & fall)

    I always have music, tv tuned in on low volume &it isn't as noticeable. I'm just glad I don't have hearing loss at my age. Many articles I've read, says my generation was exposed to the LOUD rock & roll music & that has made many of my generation hearing impaired...lol..

    I wonder what will happen to the heavy metal groups that are "getting up there" now?

    Anyway, good luck in finding something that will help.
    Hugs & Blessings;

    I just wanted to thank everyone for their posts! I don't take aspirin. I'm assuming that my hearing is okay, I can hear what my husband is saying when he wispers and he is downstairs (I'm upstairs). Anyone else have ideas, let me know!

    Thanks,

    Ringing in the ears is a classic Lyme symptom. Dr. Marshall of the Marshall Protocol said his ringing in the ears that went back to military days stopped on the MP.
    You might want to have a Igenex Western Blot test taken and let a lyme M.D. look at results.
