    I keep hearing this ringing in my left ear and have been hearing it for a couple of days now. It's really starting to annoy me. Has this happened to anyone before? :unsure:

    I have an almost constant ringing in my ears. It's called tinnitus, pretty common I think.

    I get it every now and then just randomly. I never really thought much of it, though.

    Been exposed to any loud noise for an extended period of time lately? Thats 1 common cause of it.

    I get it too (like right now for instance :mad:) so don't worry, it doesn't mean you're going off your rocker or anything. Mostly happens when there's nothing but complete silence. I just tend not to think about it, or drone it out with some music.

    Don't ignore it and go to doctor.
    Or else you can become deaf.

    I have constant ringing in my ears, the doc says it's due to too much loud music...headphones and standing too close to the stage at gigs, I've got used to it now, it's not so bad except at night when I'm trying to nod off.

    I also have it constantly, and it becomes almost like a 'white' noise sometimes.

    But I don't listen to loud music. I dont even have an mp3 player. My hearing is excellent. I just keep having this ringing sound in my left ear that started a few days ago. I think it's an 'eartone' that was described in the website Spencer posted.
