I have had a sudden onset of tinnitus which occurred after a good night's sleep. I awoke with a roaring in my right ear which is now a constant noise something like the sound of a fan blowing continuosly. Along with that there is an occasional high squeal. Normally I have excellent hearing in both ears. I could hear a baby cry upstairs over a loud room of people. I could hear a siren several miles away. Now I have this constant noise and low tones (esp. big trucks on the highway) emit this vibration that is barely tolerable. My MD checked my ear and it is clear. I did have sx's of sinusitis so I am completing an antibiotic. The tinnitus is constant and this has been going on for 12 days. I do not have a headache or earache. I was stressed the day prior d/t a close family member being ill and in the ER.
