    Am I loosing my hearing - I sometimes hear a sharp whistle in my ear which gradually disappears?

    Over the last few weeks I have noticed that I sometimes get this very sharp whistling noise in my right ear - very annoying a first then it gradually disappears and my hearing is normal.  This is happening quite allot recently - is there a doctor in the house that can shed some light on my problem.

    My husband had this problem and found out it was caused by ear wax. His Hearing Specialist (my husband has hearing aids) recommended he clean his ears more often with warm water and tea tree oil (kills bacteria in the ear that can cause wax). You leave the tea tree oil and warm water (1/2 and 1/2) in the ear for 5 minutes per ear and then drain the ear by moving your head to the side with a wash cloth over the ear to drain into. Use an ear syringe to remove the rest per ear. This helped my husband from hearing the whistling noise in his ear and this method removed the ear wax causing the problem; kept his ears clear. Wax does the oddest things in the ears. Hope this helps you too.

    I think it might also be a high blood pressure. Not sure though, just making assumptions. Why not see a real doctor, hearing is not something to play with sad

    You should also look at what you are exposing your ears to.
    Loud music, factory noise, gunfire and just about anything that makes your ears ring for a short time will eventually make them ring non-stop.
    I have lost a lot of my hearing from all of the above and it compounds a problem I have always had, that I can't filter desired foreground sounds, like conversations, from background noise.
    If you are exposed to much in the way of loud noise be sure to wear protection all the time.

    It sounds like tinnitus to me too. My husband developed that problem. You should go to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Doctor.

    Ringing in the ears? That happens to me quite often and I have amazing hearing. They do make medication to take that sound away as well.  But RATHER than doing a self diagnosis I would check with your doctor. Could be a number of reasons from too much wax to easily fixable with a pill.
