Causes Of Ringing In The Left Ear When You Wake Up?
This is pretentious, one month ago when I woke up suddenly my left ear was ringing. A week after that I checked into an ENT and he said there was only dirt and it was finally cleaned. After cleaning, a week later my right ear also buzzed. So both of them buzzed. This past week my jaw when I opened my mouth made a ‘cluck’ sound like that. And sometimes there is pain in the jaw, but only occasionally. So does this ringing in my ears have anything to do with my jaw ringing or not? But before I felt my jaw ring, my ears were ringing. So what is the real cause of my ringing ears? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ringing in the ears is called tinnitus in medical terms and is a symptom where a person hears monotonous sounds in his head that go on continuously. Based on the severity of the cause, tinnitus is divided into two, namely mild and serious causes. Among the mild causes are:
Drug side effects
Lack of iron
Hearing a very loud voice
Anxiety or stress
And serious causes of tinnitus are:
High blood pressure
Tumors in the head or neck
Benign tumors of the nerves
So in your case, it is natural for your doctor to suspect that your ringing in your ears is caused by earwax because for tinnitus it is best to rule out minor causes first, then look for serious causes, and you happen to have earwax. Furthermore, if the ringing still persists, the best step is to return to the ENT for a checkup by conveying whether there are other complaints such as spinning dizziness and decreased hearing, fever or discharge through the ears.
Regarding the relationship with the jaw, actually there is rarely a relationship between tinnitus and pain in the jaw because of the relatively far apart location. Meanwhile, you can also try to find a quiet place, away from loud noises and practice breathing by inhaling air through your nose and slowly exhaling through your mouth to help reduce the wheezing.
