Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Good evening, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for contacting us this evening.
Any high pitched noise can be tinnitus, and anything that is one sided/unilateral should always be investigated. However to begin with it would be important to get your ears checked that this is no obstructive cause first.
I would then arrange an Audiology examination to assess your hearing. This is useful at identifying if there could be a hearing loss associated this which could be aggravating the sound. Finally given your symptoms I would also arrange an MRI head to assess your middle ear as there are some benign causes which can be addressed.
I hope this helps, please do feel free to ask any further questions.
Just regarding your weight gain, I do not think this would be associated with these particular symptoms.
Please do not worry, please go ahead and ask any further questions...
