      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.

      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.

      Tinnitus in my right ear subsided but never entirely went away. It comes and goes but is the normal level loud bigh pitch hum.

      Loud noise exposure / headphone accident maybe?
      My good ear turned into my "bad" ear and vice versa.
      I was almost T-free in the good one . :((

      Now I am afraid I did something to it, like cracking my ears etc.

      In the beginning thats all it did. Now it focuses in my right ear but ocassionaly goes to my left or both when i am very tired. Just a moment ago i had some fleeting T in my left ear. God help us all.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      syringing
      Tinnitus moving from ear to ear is often a problem for musicians and dental patients. They have their mouths open singing and they are either twisting or bending their necks around. Anxiety or being hyper increases vibrations in nerve hairs in the inner ear to shiver, which triggers the auditory nerve. This happens when the jaw is expanded and the neck is bend. This will cause tinnitus to move from ear to ear and is often high pitched. Classified as somatic.

      Have you had your jaw alignment looked at. Have you had 3D on your neck? Do you grind your teeth? Treatment may help you.
