Hi. I am wondering if I am suffering from tinnitus in my left ear. For the past week I have thought that the sound was my tv was going. Music, especially on commercials and soaps, has had a very tinny off key tone to it. Then today i realised that when I held my phone to my left ear it sounded like it was vibrating. This doen't happen with my right ear and when I block the sound from my right ear I hear the vibrating noise especially when there is a strong bass on tv. When I block my other ear, most of the odd noise disappears.
I do have sinus problems and suffer from chronic post nasal drip so frequently have fullness in my ears but I don't seem to be any deafer than usual. If i make an appointment with my GP tomorrow I am unlikely to be seen until the new year as there is a 3 week wait at the best of times.
Is it likely to be tinnitus and if it is, what can I do for self help in the mean time?
