Hello everyone,

Around 1 month ago I got home from football, had a shower and went sleep, noticed a high pitched noise coming from what seemed to be my battery charger for my phone, I put this to my ear to check and it was. 

My head was really heavy that night after football before this and I noticed a very loud high pitched whistling noise in my right ear which went within 5 seconds.

Ever since I have been getting a high pitched noise in my ears but I don't notice it at work or when exercising. I Have also had headaches and dizziness since for the following 2 weeks which has now gone. But I still have this high pitched noise more like a hissing noise now and I notice it quite a lot in a quiet room. If I put my finger in my ears I can hear like the blood flowing which is a lot louder in one ear and in this ear is also like a constant wind sound which isn't very loud.

Has listening to this phone charge so close to my eat caused possible damage or tinnitus or does it sound like I have had a infection which has triggered the noises.

It's becoming a mental issue  by the fact if I don't think about it then it won't disturb me too much and I am waking up all the time at basically the same time at 2:30am in the morning which in weird. 

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I have been to the doctors but they couldn't see anything in my ears.

many thanks

    Take some bonine medicine for vertigo, walgreens or cvs pharmacies got it, just ask any worker in there, take it at night it will help you sleep and it may just he vertigo, if it doesnt work then it might just be a good idea to see your doctor and ask him to take a high blood preasure test, and get steroid treatment to heal it on time, i hope you dont let this go by, the sooner you treat it the better, it is usually good to treat it asap because in the first stages of tinnitus is convinient to treat it fast and it goes away, unless it was nois3 induce, and no, i dont think it was that charger noise, it probably vertigo or high blood preasure in my opinion, but please treat it asap!, you dont want this for ever, my is a high pitch 24/7, i hate it but its there ti stay....God nless you and heal you fast...

      cheers for the reply Ray, it was strange I have had a couple of epeiodes where my body goes all wired and I have only a slight light headed feeling, like a rush of blood throughout my body.

      I will try the medicine you mentioned and see if that helps, it's been about a month now.

      I really couldn't handle it 24/7 I admire you for coping with that

      Even if it stays dont panic, the body is just telling you something is wrong in your hearing with the tinnitus, it be a good idea to treat it asap, i just got it in february and it was hell at first, the damage is mostly mental and emotional, time and habituation is the only hope i have, i did it within 2 months then a second onset, i went to a loud loud music restaurant and boom, i messed up again, i didnt think it was noise induced, now i know it was, it happen while i had a infection in the ear and working in a loud place, so now i know, just be carefull and avoid loud places just in case, i eat,drink and work like a normal person, i try not to stress out since it just gets it worse, i have bad days but trying to live and move on, its just life, it sux lol, but then again i got a family to support.

    I doubt that your phone charger could effect your hearing.

    In my experience I get it when I am stressed. I have it at the moment but I am doing things so it doesn't disturb me.

    You hear it in bed because you are not doing anything and it is very quiet.

    Once I got up when it was too bad and did a Sudoku until I was tired. I then went back to bed.

    I know that it has been there a long time. I only realised recently that that was tinnitus. So until I had identified it as a syndrome it hadn't really bothered me. I just rationalised it as blood coursing through the brain.

    My doctor also said there was nothing that he could do.

    Apparently there are specialists who can suggest ways of dealing with it.

    Take care

      Thanks for the reply, my phone charger was making a very high pitched noise which input right near my ears. I hope this isn't the cause but I think you are right it is unlikely. 

      I am having a scan and have been referred to the ENT specialist. once I know there isn't a underlying medical problem causing it and it is because of hearing damage I can then start to let it sink in and start finding ways to cope with it, until then I don't know if it is hearing damage to my inner ear because of the high frequency or something else.
