      I have several noises in both ears.
      Buzzing, morse code, white noise and a noise like a mobile near to a radio like a 'du d dddd d dd '

      Am I the only one who has this severity? If not how do you cope with it? I'm not managing well at all. :-(

      Right ear actually recently acquired a third noise. Constant tone, morse code, and kettle boiling. Kettle noise comes and goes. Might actually be a morphing of the morse code, hard to tell. Left ear only has constant tone.

      Do you know what has caused your multiple tones ? It seems people who have noise induced t have only one tone.... Mine has come on gradually and think it's more blood pressure, internal body created.

      Multiple tones here also. Started as a tonal EEEEE in both ears but over the years has morphed into a louder tonal sound in the right with some high frequency hissing, a louder tonal in the left with a variety of Morse codes at different speeds and frequencies and recently I have acquired a very high pitch ring/hiss which appears to be central...I also have a noise like a wet finger being run around the top of a wine glass in the left, currently this comes and goes.....all in all it is damn noisy in here :mad:

      I cope by keeping busy and active, trying to think positively and not catastrophic thinking, looking forward to the occasional good days I get, and remaining hopefully for a cure/treatment . I also talk daily to a fellow sufferer from Sweden who has very similar t type/loudness/duration etc ...we are like each others T counselors and know we can speak to each other for support and understanding which is really nice :)

      Have also multiple tones in each ear. For 70% I can figure out the frequencies.

      The rest is very hard to describe .... Sounds like my complete hearing system is active ... Really hard to cope with

      I think the original morse code sound is the result of an ear infection. The constant tone that I only got in december might might might be noise-related, but there was no one event I can pin it on.

      My tinnitus sounds like a table saw mixed with a lazer cutting metal, with a clicking in my left ear that sounds like the wheel of fortune wheel.

      Minor since 1993 , worse since 09/2013

      I did at first. Mine first started mild high pitched whine which matched my also mild percent right ear loss. Then a few weeks later some loud sounds aggravated it to a piercing whistle. Then it switched to left ear just for a bit. Then a month later this new squishing and hissing almost like a rinsing water sound started back of head which is there a lot of the time, but the high pitched whistle died down a little lol.

      If I can get my multiple sounds to collaborate and play me Moonlight Sonata that would be good

      I have crickets, changes to high pitched ringing comes and goes along with hissing, then a chime comes in which sounds like a tinkering sound and along with that i have a morse code that pops in and gets louder like be be be beeeeeeep... Hmmm and my T is fairly quiet thankgod. If i could choose one sound only it would be the crickets cause when im in silence it litterly sounds like crickets and is easier to trick my brain in thinking im actually hearing crickets

      Trileptal has shown to be extremely effective for "typewriter" tinnitus.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Myofascial Trigger Points
      I have multiple sounds in each ear. One of my loudest sounds may be somatic (muscle induced) though. I have multiple health conditions and one of them is TMJ dysfunction and myofascial pain syndrome. I've got some weird face numbness that comes and goes below the eyes and also weird cold water sensations and burning all over my body.

      Well, my right masseter muscle hurts a lot. When I press on it I get a loud hissing in my right ear that lasts for a while after, it doesn't do that on the left side, which doesn't hurt. The right is the one that normally has a hissing or high pitch hissing.

      Trigger points in the masseter muscle can cause tinnitus, as well as the SCM muscle and maybe others, almost a dozen according to some lists. I've tried treating my TMJ issues without luck and also tried massaging the masseter muscle, but the pain always stays or returns soon and the sound never goes away.

      I recently discovered a trigger point spot in my upper part of the SCM which when pressed just right refers pain to the masseter muscle area somewhat. I have also read that the SCM trigger points can be the trigger of the masseter trigger point, so I may be able to treat the SCM trigger point now that I have found it. It was a small spot that was between the two divisions and I can't tell which. It is very hard to massage myself and keeps jumping around like jelly. It is hard to use two hands as well.

      When I put my head down on my pillow in a suburban house at night that is when I can hear a lot of different sounds I didn't used to hear. I can't hear all of them in most environments or in my apartment in the city. My left ear makes some kind of beeping noise I can hear during the day. The other noises are lower tones I think and not as loud.

      I used to think I just had this one somatic sound on my right side and it would get better when I fixed my trigger points and TMJ, but after discovering all these other sounds I got depressed because I doubt they are all somatic or can be fixed.

      My tinnitus onset coincided with an adverse reaction to a medication / poison as well as the muscle muscle problem progressing from just chronic neck pain at the base of the skull to then intermittent face numbness below the eyes and temple and jaw pain and electric shocks in the side of the head.

      After that I tried to treat the trigger points, but my massage therapist referred me to a private doctor for other tests and he used a non-approved test for lyme disease and said I had it. I then used a lyme disease organization referral page and tried antibiotics from a doctor there and developed my third health problem when I started the antibiotics. Since then I've gotten cold water and burning sensations all over.

      No idea if it could all be related, but I'm not assuming it is anymore.

      I have mid frequency and high frequency pure tones in both ears, plus a filtered sound-type thing in my right ear and a morse code thingy also in my right ear. The sounds exclusive to my right ear aren't louder but they're much harder to ignore.
