When I read you reply I was very worried as I know there is no cure. However I am confused as to what has happened . Firstly I am to see a ENT specialist soon who says that I will need my ears irrigating to improve the condition. I remember waking up and noticing this noise two weeks ago but I wasn't aware of anything that could have caused this apart from the wax build up. So I may have already had tinnitus but not really noticed it but the wax problem has made it worse. Could this be the case ? I know I have had swishing sounds prior to this then a high pitched buzz then it faded away so I wasn't really aware of it that much.
When you say I need to go over the whole list with my doctor what does this mean ? After the irrigation how long is it usually before the condition settles down ? I don't have any additional symptoms other than the noises.
O.K. that has helped me understand. I am hoping it is wax build up, as I know this is evident, or maybe even stress or anxiety as I have had numerous conditions related with this..e.g. IBS, palpatations, excess stomach acid.
