      How common is it?

      Is there a reason why it happens?

      Have happened to me for a few seconds since onset.
      The constant noise in the left ear moves to the right one for a few seconds.

      barotrauma from airplane descent, noise exposure? ETD? TMJD?
      My tinnitus switched to my right ear. I'm not sure if it's neck muscle caused or brain based, or something else? Confusing. I tried Cymbalta for 2 or 3 days and now have sweaty palms. Probably will quit Cymbalta.

      I've had tinnitus apparent on my left side since 1969 like an annoying old friend that won't go away. Once in awhile I will experience a chirping sound on my right side that will go away a short time after it starts. Last night my tinnitus increased in volume and switched to my right side, the left side noise may still be there masked by this new loud gift. I recently had cataract surgery on my left eye and have been using steroid drops for inflammation, anyone had eye surgery cause this switch. The new louder hum is driving me crazy, have to get used to it all over again.

      For me T. goes from ear to ear via my head. Right ear is worst though.

      I've had this happen and I am deaf in the ear that it switches to so it can't have anything to do with hearing.
