I am a 21 year who just started hearing a soft consistent ringing sound almost like the soft hum of the refrigerator or kettle on my left ear. I do like to use earphones to listen to music while doing homework because i am a college student. Weeks before i experienced ringing in my left ear I was very sick, had a sore throat, then a fever, recovered, then had a stuffy nose and the common cold. About 2 weeks before I am not sure if it was a concussion but i was doing judo and practicing chokes. My arteries must have been blocked for too long while practing and started feeling dizzy. I experienced a horrible migraine and this led my sore throat into a fever. I was very stressed from school and had a hard time recovering from my cold that was the by-product of my fever. I am trying to think of possible reasons that coulf have caused my ear ringing symptoms and i hope it is not something serious and long term like tinnitus. I will make an appointment to see my family doctor to get it checked out but until then I don't know what to do and I am extremely worried I will hear ringing for the rest of my life.
