I've had this ringing in my ear since the start of May. In one ear only. I've read online that having it in one ear only could be dangerous. My hearing in that ear has been bad since the ringing started. My other ear is fine. The problem is most of my information is coming from what i read on the internet (information sites, not from people themselves). I've been to the doctors who then asked me to come back to get my ear syringed, and to use olive oil ear drops until then. The ear drops didnt work. Getting my ear syringed didn't help. The doctor said she wasn't sure she got all the ear wax out. I stopped using the ear drops. I went home and waited. That was from the start of May to the end of June. At the start of July, I went to see the doctor again. Each time I go, it's a different doctor who tells me the same thing. They didn't know what to do to be honest, there was no sense of urgency, and I wasn't given any answers. The last doctor I seen at the start of July recommended me to another doctor outside of their surgery who specialises in this stuff. The problem is it's been 2 weeks and I'm still waiting to receive the information in the mail (the contact details so i can make an appointment with the new doctor). I don't know what this is. I can barely hear anything out of one ear. The ringing isn't as loud as it was at first, and doesn't distract me much...but it's there. Can someone offer me some kind of explanation or something please? I'm getting very little help from the doctors right now, and I'm getting really worried. Is it uncommon to have this in just one ear? What can I do while I wait to hear from doctors again?
