I got used to the ringing in my ears, but the ringing in the right ear has become much louder over the last few months, which makes sleeping in silence hard. The left ear started a beeping sound, but has progressed to a low pitch clarinet-like sound that sometimes goes away when I pop my ears.

I'm seeing an ENT in a few days, but this is maddening and makes sleep so hard.

I have some too, likely from years of operating loud construction tools and shooting guns w/o protection. More of a high pitched hiss than a whine. Have to leave a radio on to get sleep.

I've tried different fans for noise, but generally just leave the TV on a low volume to sleep these days.

My cousin had something like that. Turned out to be an infection. She's now completely deaf in her right ear. But the ringing is gone.

I have pulsatile tinnitus once in a while and seeing the doctor about high blood pressure next week, from what I've read online it's best to have a doctor check it.

I have heart problems that could potentially cause some of the issues. Problem is it will be 8 weeks still to see the cardiologist

You must be in the US, I will see the doctor next week. Problem is he sends a request to the insurance (about a week) I get a letter and call the specialist and make an appointment witch could take as long as 2 weeks. At the specialist to confirm the problem and the specialist makes a request to treat problem and that can take up to 2 weeks. Yeah it takes a long time in the US.

Back home in Germany it would take one week and 3 office visits.

Yeah going from making a primary care dr appointment to cardiologist referral to electrophysiologist referral for surgery will easily take me into likely February. Many hospitals and private practice offices are very understaffed right now. I had an appointment today where I waited for over an hour after my appointment time to be called back because they are understaffed everywhere.

When in used to play clarinet in the Russian Siberia orchestra I used to get it bad. But I started using Possum fecal drips and now I barely notice it

I will make sure to not join the Russian Siberian orchestra. Thanks for the tip.

Are you vaccinated tho?

No, and severe onset tinnitus is a vaccine symptom. The owner of the Texas Roadhouse chain literally killed himself after suffering severe tinnitus due to receiving the covid shot. I'm not risking making this any worse
