I have never had Tinnitus before, but recently have had a variety of throat/voice related issues due to extreme tension for years. I also had my tonsils out a few months ago to try and relieve some tension.
In the last few weeks I occasionally get a sudden quite loud high pitched ringing in one or other ear that only lasts a few seconds, which I'm guessing is not unusual.
But in my right ear I have a fairly constant ringing. It sounds more like a whistling sound, as it is not a smooth tone, it modulates. It is about D sharp-5 on a piano, or 622HZ.
It does seem to dissapear at times, mainly in the morning after a good nights sleep, or when I am more rested and less stressed. But otherwise it is there a lot of the time.
I have been having intense deep massage on my throat and neck muscles by a specilalist for my voice problems, and the right hand side (where the tinntiust is) is far far worse for tension. I wondered if tinnitus couldbe due solely to a lot of tension?
I am a musician and singer and am struggling a lot with the loss of my voice and the pain, and the tinnitus is just adding a constant level of stress to the whole matter
Is there anything I can be doing or not doing to help, or to not make it worse? I have been taking painkillers, not a lot, but paracetaol, ibroprufen and codeine, just alternating really. I have read that these can make it worse, but its not conclusive and I dont know if I should stop taking all painkillers
Any help greatly appreciated
