      Hi, this is my first time posting here. I found the site thru a podcast on tinnitus and am amazed that there are so many people suffering from ear noise.

      Some background. I'm a librarian in the Midwest and believe me when I say that silence is truly golden. My *noise* seems to be a constant high level buzzing. I'm trying to maintain a positive attitude about this but it's difficult when no one talks about this malady. This is like a club that I never wanted to join.

      Cheer, MDZ

      HI @MDZ

      Welcome to the forum.

      Many things can cause tinnitus but the most common is exposure to loud sounds and headphones use. Do you listen to music through headphones or earbuds regularly even at low volume? Have you had any tests at ENT yet?
