I haven't had any annoying ailments for a long time but since my husband left on a trip last week I have run the gamut! Yesterday evening I was trying to stay busy so invited a friend over. Midway through the evening I noticed a ringing in my right ear. Didn't think too much of it as I've had this before but it usually lasts for a minute then goes away....except it's a day later and as of this evening the ringing hasn't gone away.
I am trying not too freak out but it really bothers me that the ringing hasn't gone. Has anyone ever had ringing in one ear that lasts for awhile? I am 24 weeks pregnant but doubt this is related (no whooshing or heartbeat noise, just ringing).
Before I went on antibiotics for the Sinnus/Ear infection I have, I had a ton of ringing in both ears. I'm just being realistic about it. There are other causes for it though like listening to music at a loud, loud concert. Tinnitus, I believe it is called. Sometimes it can just come from nothing and leave whenever it likes. It could be caused by a medley of things, but just remember if you get an ear ache, that's probably why. If you happen to get an ear ache, give it 5 days to a week to sort out. If it doesn't improve or gets worse during that time then see a doctor promptly. If you get a dramatic pain (Which i really really doubt you will) seek medical attention for it prior to the end of the 5 to 7 day period. After that you may need antibiotics. Ask about Cefprozil while you're there, 250mg twice a day. It's a really gentle antibiotic but really does the infection in. It's not for you if you're allergic to pennicillin or cephelasporin antibiotics.
But yeah it realy could be from anything.
