I would really love to hear from anyone who has tinnitus in one ear. I noticed tinnitus about eight months ago, at a pretty low level. It was so low it took me some time to realise that it was only in one ear. Over the past few months the pitch has risen to be heard throughout the day and it has changed from a white noise fuzz to almost a whistling sound..the fuzz is still underlying the whistle. I recently had a bout of flu and have had a blocked ear for a couple of months, and hearing loss. My doc has given me Valium, a steroidal nasal spray and a referral to an ENT on 25 November. Has anyone else had the same sort of problem? What helped or made it worse? It is starting to affect my work!!
