I have fluctuating tinnitus that is stronger in the left ear. Recently I have been noticing more and more connections with behaviors and movements, and I wanted to ask whether the following might be an indication of some particular cause or route to remedy. 1. When there is air pressure coming from my throat, e.g. hiccups or burping, there is a momentary surge of a kind of high-pitched hissy tinnitus in the left ear. 2. When I apply pressure on the bone just above the left ear, I can influence the sound. At present I have a medium-pitched sound, maybe around 6000 Hz, in the left ear, and when I press, it momentary gets higher and a bit quieter and fuzzier. I have an MRI scheduled for next month.
