My tinnitus came on suddenly. This past May it was just there. It keeps getting worse. A loud ringing, along with a buzzing, and layered over the top is a humming noise. Only in my left ear. Doc can't find anything, but he had me try Flonase, and then Prednisone, which did not help. ENT, without even looking in my ear, says "You'll have to learn to live with it." He did, however, set me up with an appointment with an Audiologist in December. I don't feel like I have any hearing loss, but we shall see. I can't get away from it. The thought of living another 30 years like this is depressing. Don't think I can do that.
