      Hi, I'm Manda and I'm entering my 4th month with tinnitus. (Both ears, along with pain/ pressure. Not sure of the cause. Some Drs have said TMJ, while urgent care thought it was ear infection or fluid build up)
      My ringing was very loud at its onset, but after a few months it seemed to even out. The sound was definitely still there, but it was softer and more even. Randomly as I was going to bed a few nights ago, a new noise popped up in my right ear. I figured it would go away shortly, but it was still there in the morning and it and the old sound get louder every day. Now I have 2 super loud noises in my right ear and I have no idea what caused it to suddenly get worse, is there anything I can do? It's in the ear that I usually sleep on, can that make a difference at all?

      Can you see a another doctor and make sure you don't have an ear infection?

      You mention it being the ear you sleep on, may be coincidence, but your Eustachian tube won't drain well if you are sleeping on that ear.

      Hi Manda. I'm no doctor but it smeels like the reason for such worsening for no good reason ( no acoustic trauma ? no barotrauma etc. ) suggets sth phisiological. More fluid built up ? Eustachian tubes problems ? I'd see an ENT as soon as possible...if they state all fine , it may just be a temporary spike that happen to most of us ..sometimes for no reason at all ..since your T is new it may fluctuate like this..let us know.
