I've had T for a while and nobody was really able to tell me what the cause was. All I really know is I had a pretty bad cold and some stuffy ears, and then I woke up one morning with a pretty nasty ring in my left ear. This has been with me for a couple of years now and has gone from a 9/10 to a 2/10 and only really noticeable on bad days / nights. It went through several stages but had improved enough for it not to bother me anymore. Now, a couple of weeks ago I was happily sitting watching some TV when I noticed my left ear close up again and along with it was a very high pitched ring / white noise. It seems to also get worse if I'm tired or having a bad day, but it sits on top of all sounds, so unless I'm listening to music or driving, I can hear it all the time. It also sounds like it bounces around my head, sometimes loud in the left ear, other times the right, and also equally as loud / quiet in both. I can seemingly modulate the volume by clenching and stretching my jaw, but after reading about it sounds like its not related. Could this be my first spike? I'm just slightly worried as it has been with me for two weeks now, and its frustrating that his happens after all the effort I went through to protect my ears from any further damage.
