Sometimes it's louder but seem to be there all the time on a lower decimal rating.

Don't know about "normal," but many people have it.

I developed it about three years ago. It was varying patterns of noise and its intensity was from soft to moderately loud. I would have it for two or three hours then a break, then maybe an hour or two and so on. Once in awhile it would go away for several weeks, but his did not happen often.

Now at age 78 I notice that for some unknown reason it has almost ceased entirely, and when I do have it, it is now at a low pitch and only for a short time.

This issue as I know it, is from use of pain meds and other meds MOSTLY. A friend who is almost totally deaf and older than me says her hearing loss/tinnitus was from years of Midol.

A dear person in my life is deaf from opiats and other meds like diuretics.

I have a little ringing and I do take ibuprofen and working to take less daily now. Ears don't ring as much as they did before how more ibuprofen.

My ear ringing began approximately 25 years ago (am in my 70s); went to several ENTs and the only answer any of them gave was that it was probably 'mechanical'; meaning it is due to listening to music through headphones.

I hardly ever notice it anymore.

I've had tinnitus for many years, mostly from abusing my ears with loud headphones, which causes damage. The ringing is always there, never stops.

The issue as you know it, is wrong....

Tinnitus is not caused MOSTLY by medications and in fact medications is pretty far down the list of potential causes of this disorder....

I have had tinnitus for the last fifty seven years. It is really a great thing to have; I cannot always hear all of the honeydo list! Besides, after so many years, it would be lonely without it!

I love the teenagers with the car stereos that make our windows shake. I always look at them and smile and think they will be the next generation of the half-deaf! Who says there is no justice in the world!

Probably all the drugs listed caused tinnitus and then Sudden Hearing Loss in someone very close to me....so I know about these drugs....and a friend is about deaf from years of Midol. I've taken my share of pain meds and get some tinnitus but not much these days.

Pharma drugs are a major cause...maybe I need to post causes from a non conventional medicine site. This person lost her hearing in her 40's from vicodin, loop diuretic and quinine from the THEN conventional MD she trusted...She has taken a 360 degree turn around but lives in silence when she removes her cochlear attachments. What's that oath: Do No Harm!!!

I have had it for several years. Oddly enough it was almost a relief when it went 24/7 (for the first few years it would come and go) because now I almost have to think about it to realize it is there (except when it spikes). When it would come and go it bothered me every time it came back.
