Alcohol and Ear Buzzing

Posted , 6 users are following.

After I drink I usually hear a buzzing sound in my ear. Is this a symptom of alcohol withdrawal? Please advise.

      Hi Robin,

      Had an episode of binge drinkig, so a few shots of vodka everynight for a couple days. Disappears when I take a nap and wake up, but is usually there after drinking, not early but after a couple shots go in I figured it was maybe an allergic.

    Hi brit01

    Sorry never heard of this. The only tenuous connection I can make is that drinking can be stressful (especially too much) stress make an existing condition called tinnitus worse. I suffer from tinnitus.

    You need to see your gp, there are meds for this. Don't leave it untreated, it can get worse

    Kind Regards

      Hi there,

      I have read about tinnitus. But I figured if it isn't there when I am sober it's probably something that I wouldn't need to worry about. It is there after I am a few shots in, but usually disappears after I some sleep. I will get it checked out if I notice it while I am sober as well. Thanks for your words.

    I suffer Tinnitus - this actually sounds more an alergic reaction.  When I drink red wine, I sneeze 12 times in a row after the first glass.  Ears and nose are conneced.

    The alcohol activates histamines.
