re: 'hissing' sound in ears....

I have a chronic/constant 'hissing' sound in my ears. This started simultaneously with the daily headaches. Does anyone else experience this sound?? Just curious....

It's tinnitus. I have it too. Loud ringing and buzzing. It's quite annoying. I haven't figured out what is causing it. '

I also deal with tinitus and when monster was coming down it turn to a buzzing/hissing sound also. That is when i knew it was going to be a bad one. There are a few treatment options but for most we just have to live with it. The only advantage to mine was it was a good alarm system for what was coming. I called it my tornado siren. Shocked

Mine started exactly when the headaches did. I'm just trying to find a connection. There must be one? When I mention this to doctors they seem to ignore it. At times it is a quiet hiss. At times it is loud. I have had it wake me up. But only occassionally.

Hmmmm, is right....

Funny that it started at EXACTLY the same time as the headaches. Had NEVER experiened it before. I wish doctors would listen a little more to the patients experience. Perhaps they and we might learn something. I don't think things always go exactly as the textbook might say. But then again what do I know...

I get a constant hissing or low ring sound when I have a m. It`s annoying. When the m stops, so does the noise in my ear.

Tinnitus

Post  Mule Kick on Fri Apr 16, 2010 12:40 pm

The tinnitus crept-up on me many years after the headaches had already started. Adulthood vs. Childhood. I believe that (for me) the tinnitus resulted from physical exposure to loud noise, or noise at certain frequencies.

Some examples, in approximate chronilogical order, of such noises that I have been exposed too include:
  • Being on the Flight-Line (even w/ear protection), in the Air Force (jet-engines)
  • Blowing across the top of a bottle, producing a pitch that deafened me for a few hours
  • Washing dishes (mostly w/o ear-protection), in a resturant (industrial size dish-machine)


The ringing, sometimes, changes in pitch, intensity, or both in each ear independantly of the other.

There is no such thing as peace and quiet, ever. The ringing just goes on-and-on, forever, 24/7. A very stressful condition to live with.

Try searching inner ear problems you may be surprised how well you "fit" the syndromes
Meneires / labyrinthitis are 2 starters.

Mine started exactly when my migs first started. And the docs said the same thing, "probably not related".

But then again they get paid the same amount whether they give a rip or not. The "not" part is much easier requiring less work.

Good point Brent. My neuro couldnt have been less interested if it was paint drying...

I am going to pursue the inner ear problems, for me it is making a lot of sense. Grandmother went deaf early on and they told her way back then it was genetic. Will let you know. I will add Gran has celiacs if you are interested in the autoimmune side of things.

The first ENT doc I saw just told me about a tinitus website to watch for any developments. What a blow off.

Brent if I get a firm diagoisis on inner ear problem I can actually pinpoint my first attack. It was 1982 three weeks after Dad died, before my life/symptoms became complicated. LOL because if I don't I would just cry.
