    Loud ring in the ear

    For the past year, I've been facing this loud ring in the right ear. No doctor's seem to find out what I have. I have not being diagnosed with tinnitus, but the ring is so loud to the point that wakes me up at night. It's torture. No one knows what I am facing, no one seems to care. I have done MRI, MRA of the ear and the brain and no one finds anything.
    Anyone has faced this? Any ideas of what it could be? I appreciate your time.

    Hi, I have ringing in my ear for 10 months, Right side only! I also had Eucstation tube dysfunction, which can cause ringing, surgery was done, Still have the ringing, Please get a pressure check test in your ears! That will help determine if you have Eucstation tube dysfunction! Also TMJ can cause ringing , which I have also, working on those teeth, so I can wear a night guard! Please see an ENT, but ask for a recommendations , most don’t know much about Tinnitus! Good Luck

    They probably won't diagnose Tinnitus because there is no pill for it, but by definition, tinnitus is ringing in the ears. Best to use distraction, good music, nature sounds, white noise work for me. Beware of earbuds-- they can make it worse.

    I know exactly what you've experienced with ear ringing. I have lost 50% hearing in my left ear with severe ringing, swooshing sound no stop for 20 years. Like you, all kinds of tests and MRI's. Hearing aids have been recommended. Loud places and noises worsen it. I use a fan at night as white noise which can help and earplugs when flying , using my lawn mower and at movies. The less I think about it, the easier it has become for me to accept it as part of my life.
