Hey guys, so I'm just gonna get straight to the point, I got tinnitus in my left ear due to an ear infection I got about 3 weeks ago, the ear infection I think was probably brought on by a viral infection I had just before it. The tinnitus itself started about 3 days into the infection and has been ringing in its high pitched scream for the past 20 days now! When I initially got the infection I woke up one morning and my left ear felt very full and was almost deaf, this was very frustrating but nothing compared to what I was about to endure for the next 3 weeks!! I have been to see my GP 3 times and had been given antibiotics to clear up my infection (which it did). This is were it gets a bit weird for me, my ear popped about 8 days into the ridiculous ringing and gave me most if not all my hearing back in my left ear which was an amazing relief (only for that day) as it helped masked the ringing. Now a couple of days later the infection cleared up but both my right ear and my left ear got filled up with fluid behind the ear drum, I went to see an ENT specialist who diagnosed me with "adult glue ear" in both ears? Anyway I'm just in a lot of worry as the ringing I have hasn't stopped not even for a second and it is literally all I think about, I find myself on here reading stories of tinnitus just to try and take my mind off my own, I still try to socialise with my friends and everyone seems very understanding but I'm just worried that the glue ear will cause the tinnitus to become permanent (I must add it is still only in my left and I've never heard it in my right). I am personally holding onto the hope that the tinnitus was from the infection not the glue ear and that it will gradually disappear over time. Any help will be greatly appreciated as I feel completely lost with this stupid annoying and unbearable noise!! Dean.
