      I need help. I have been hearing a low rumble, like a car engine, in my left ear. It comes and goes at all different times of the day and night.

      I also notice it is worse when the TV is at a low volume.

      What is this? Does this happen to any other fellow Tinnitus Talk reader? Any suggestions to stop it?

      I have it too, but it’s buried under the HF tones.

      BTW @Brian P, @valeri, @Kriszti and @cml - I found a new YouTube video that (when played at the proper volume) completely eliminates my hum. Finally it's something better (more melodic) than the spaceship drone noise I had to listen to before ... at least this is meditation music.

      @valeri, does yours start and stop with other sounds? Like many others have mentioned.

      There is no way to "stop it" other than time. Unless you did something catastrophic to your ears (like a gunshot or something) you just need to give it time, most likely it will fade in a few weeks/months.

      It seems to start sometimes watching TV. The neighbor next door has kids and the jumping vibrating of the floors have set it off. Sometimes anxiety makes it worse.

      Has anyone found a solution, something that works?

      I do not like to hear it at night. I can’t sleep on that side.

      Get used to sleeping on the other ear. You can’t just get rid of it. If I could get rid of it I wouldn’t be here commiserating with you all.

      For me, the low frequency noise has been the noise hardest to get used to because the moment you think it's less noticeable the neighbour's subwoofer sets it off once again, or one of those horribly oversized agricultural machines drives by, as, unfortunately, they do here like 50 times a day at times, and the whole building vibrates for minutes after that... It's brought me to tears many times because my brain just can't get used to this frequency.

      Before I got hit with hyperacusis on top of the tinnitus noises I already had, I used to have the radio on low all the time to give my mind something else to focus on than that horrible humming noise. I've got a pair of WNG, too. They don't help with the my high pitch tones but work very well when it comes to blocking anything low frequency.

      It doesn’t stop, it’s only masked temporarily by other low frequency sounds.
