      Can you hear any T from your bad ear in your good ear? Like reverberations? Trying to figure out if I have very mild tinnitus in one ear, or if i'm just sensing the T from my bad ear when I plug my ear. Any opinions appreciated!

      I had T in one ear at first. Later on it moved to the other as well.

      I have tinnitus in my right ear. It's been this way for 6 years. My left ear is fairly consistent and fine. This is the side I sleep on most of the time! :)

      Yup my left ear is normal. My right ear is dodgy. No idea why the right ear over the left. I had lots of ear infections as a child so it's possible that contributed many years later.

      Yes my left ear is fine. I hear a high pitched sound inside my right ear, as if it's coming from my brain stem and going out the right ear. And I can hear out of both ears.

      I am experiencing the same thing right now. I have very bad T in my left ear and when it's at its worse it's like I can hear it in my whole head and I even believe I can hear different frequencies in my right ear but it's hard to locate. When the T is at its lowest I only hear a light hiss in my left ear and nothing in my right. It's quite strange.

      I have both tinnitus and pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear only. I've had this for over five years now, and fairly mild tinnitus in my right ear only before that. My left ear is perfectly normal, and I don't hear any tinnitus in it. The only exception is when I have one of those brief episodes where the ears are trying to balance themselves. Then, I might hear a ringing tone very briefly in my left ear; it goes away within less than a minute.

      I had central sounding mild tinnitus for many years. Then more hearing loss occurred and it all shifted to the right ear. Occasionally when it spikes( head cold or sinuses blocked) it will move into the left as well, just slightly, sort of like you are describing, but generally fades back into the right.

      FOr me it's in my right ear , generally I don't hear it in my left but from time to time I will notice it just in my left ear although it will go back into my right ear.
