    ringing and buzzing noise in your ears

    I have this ringing and sometimes buzzing sound in my ears since chemo. Does anyone else had this? It is worse if I lay down and put my head on a pillow or on the bed with no pillow, either way I still hear this never ending noise. It's driving me crazy and keeps me from sleeping.

      I think that I hear you. My hearing isn't that great-according to hearing tests-but hearing aids magnify the tinnitus. I tell my ENT- why spend thousands so the buzzing is louder.

      My husband has loud ringing in his ears since finishing Cisplatin chemo treatments for his tongue cancer. His oncologist says hopefully it will lessen over time.

      I have had it for a long, long time. I can't remember if I had it before chemo or not, but definitely since. I generally tune it out but like now, because we are talking about it, I hear it loud and clear. I usually tell people it keeps me company because it is constant and loud. I am sure it makes my hearing worse - people have to compete with the ringing in my ears.

      You might be able to get some anti-anxiety meds. It won't help with the tinnitus, but it might help calm your nerves enough to deal with it and be able to sleep.
