      The cold
      I visited an ent specialist yesterday and she said my inner ear has fluids in it or something is being blocked somewhere causing the T i did experience an ear infection 2 years ago and that was when i first noticed the ringing in my head and completely went into panic mode but my gp gave me some meds and it went away im thinking now maybe i should have just gone back by him.... Im hoping it really is an ear infection and it goes away soon

      The short answer is yes. Many people, including some doctors incorrectly see it as a result of acoustic trauma, but hormonal changes, ETD, Viruses, TMJ, acoustic schwannoma, perilymph fistula and brain damage are all also possible causes - amongst others.
