Hi, For such thing it is best to see a otolaryngologist. They specialize in the ears, nose and throat ENT specialist is what stands for. Seeing such doctor is a good idea to be sure about this.

Good Luck,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It might be best to see your doctor and have him exam you. Tinnitus is a ringing, swishing, or other type of noise that seems to originate in the ear or head.  One of the most common causes of tinnitus is damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear, loud noise exposure, some medications and other diseases of the inner ear (Meniere's syndrome) can cause tinnitus.  It's important to see your doctor, so you can know the cause of your symptoms.
