Hi, I am new here because I am researching why my ears suddenly started ringing and the noise would not go away. It is upsetting to me because I am a healthy woman in my mid 30’s. When I read that there is no cure I became devistated thinking I CANNOT live with this the rest of my life. I have 5 children who depend on my sanity to care for them.
What I have done so far is go to the chiropractor thinking my neck was out. I went to the doctor to express my concerns only to be told I may of had a inner ear infection resulting in some damage that it will go away. I’m getting ready to call the dentist so he can examine to see if I have any upper tooth infection that I may not be feeling in my jaw area.
I have not been exposed to any loud noises or experienced any ear infections. All of this stuff on the internet that claims to be the cause is not related to me. So I’m thinking what in the world is going on. I’m trying to go back in my life 2 weeks ago and pin point when and where and how and why this would have started.
I did learn that exposure to carbon monoxide can cause this. Anyone with a gas stove or kerosene heater in their home or going to the garage with your car running to get warm in this cold weather can cause ringing in the ears. Anyone for whatever reason may have started smoking alot more then usually because of stress in their life could be overdosing themselves with carbon monoxide.
I have also found out that lots of stress in your life can cause ringing in your ears like the article I found at The Root of Ear Problems in Adults which I found very interesting because right about the time I started having ringing in my ears we started a new business that I poured every last dime into hoping to not lose my butt and it become a profitable business. Since the business has started I have been bound to the house unable to have my own time to do anything which become very stressful because I am not one to feel “trapped” anywhere.
I hope this little bit of information helps someone out there. I will be working on relaxing techniques and I will check back in a couple of weeks to let you know if my ringing stopped.
