HI Daphne,

I've been experiencing Tinnitus for exactly one year now! I was given high blood pressure medicine a year ago (but it wasn't for high blood pressure it was for an unrelated issue that one of the side effects of HBP meds was supposed to help, but it didn't, it only gave me Tinnitus! Thanks, Doc). Originally the tinnitus was just in my right ear, now it's starting in the left. Sometimes one ear will go to a higher/louder pitch & it's like listening to my own symphony in my head! It is really an awful thing to live with & I can't believe there are no meds to make this go away. If you find anything that helps you, please let me know!

Is the ringing in the ear constant or does it come and go?

Ringing in the ears that does not get better or go away is called tinnitus.

The first step in treatment is to find the underlying cause. This may include ear wax removal or  treating a blood vessel or changing your medications, if these are possible causes.
