I've had a whooshing, wind blowing sound in my left ear since Dec 5th. I've been to an ENT and my hearing is perfectly normal and my tubes are functioning. However, he offered nothing above the diagnosis of "You have tinnitus" and sent me on my way with no other help. However, I've noticed that if I press on the ear below my ear and behind my jaw (by the hinge) the sound quiets if not silences completely. So my question is this, I know that I have Tinnitus, but what could it be a symptom of? I've googled it with little success. My dentist has said that it doesn't look like I have TMJ and the hinge of my jaw looks perfect. Is anyone else able to quiet their tinnitus by pressing on an area by their ear?
