Anyone here ever have ringing in just one ear? Iíve been experiencing it for the past month or so. I a retired firefighter so I figured that may have something to do with it.

Both ears 24/7....I figured it was the years of shotguns...(clays, ducks and doves) without ear protection....and loud music as a clueless high schooler/early college student.....

I have just learned to block it out mentally and not let it bother me. It's not going away.

Both ears, all day, every day. I've somewhat gotten used to it except when it is dead still and quiet. That's when it is most noticeable.

Both since high school. I have gotten used to it.
There are times when it will triple in sound for about 20 seconds.
Most of the time I don’t notice it. I notice it the most when I am hunting and the woods are quiet.

both... for years...
btw-- it's not cause by external noise.
It's usually associated with age, or hearing loss, or injury..

I hate to hear that. My ringing goes away from the minute I put it in my ear until I take it out. Now say I forget it or just donít put it in I can go a day maybe without ringing definitely not a cure but relief for me.

Maybe you just need a different tone programmed in to the hearing aid or the volume turned up on just the tone to drown out the ringing.

Default Tinnitus

Iíve had it since I was 21 or so. One dumb afternoon of shooting pistols and it hasnít stopped since.

One of the worst parts is that sinus issues, stress and other random loud noises make it ramp up quickly.

I sleep with a white noise machine and even occasionally will use a white noise machine in my office during the day. As weird as it seems it helps take my mind off the ear ringing.

Have it in both ears since as long as I can remember. Being a DA kid without wearing hearing protection did it for me. Wish I would have worn ear plugs more often. Not much you can do about it after you have it, unfortunately

Yep - both ears for years. Rings 24/7/365, most offer the loudest thing in the room. Have learned to live with it ( what else can you do). Always thought loud rock n roll music, shooting without ear protection and loud machinery were the suspects. Have discovered over the years that when I drink coffee in the mornings, my ears ring louder during and for several hours after. Assumed this was caused by a rise in blood pressure.

They thought I was crazy at work when I ordered 35 sets of ear muffs for my techs. I wish someone would have told me when I was young to protect my hearing. I preach to them all the time about their backs, eyes, and ears.
