      Just out of curiosity, does anyone know exactly when their noise started?

      I only ask because I'm so freaked out by mine - remember exactly how they started all by putting a smartphone against my ear , at first heard these beeps and chirps in various places then later on, placed my head under water and heard like a machine gun pap pap pap until it repeated to high pitched noise - same occurred when bit onto tin foil (there was a reason!!)

      So yes just curious does anyone remember the exact moment the noise started ??

      Terry b, Mine started in early morning hours of July 9th, 2010. Could have been from car accident 2 days prior. Ears are normal, had all tests, etc.....Probable whiplash at first. I still have bad neck and shoulder muscle problems. Hope you feel better soon.

      Barotrauma/airplane
      Yep. I got off a transatlantic airplane flight from Paris to Cincinnati OH midday in June 2013. In excruciating pain from barotrauma, caused by a malfunctioning eustachian tube. My ears were ringing. Haven't stopped since.

      Note: Tell everyone you know that they should never, ever fly if they have a severe cold or middle/inner ear infection.
