Siren in my Ear
I just started noticing this sound in my right ear. It began about three days ago and I noticed it at night.
At first I thought it was my dog's nose whistling, but thought that my dog was breathing very fast. Was it the cat under the bed? Then I thought it was a bird chirping outside my window....what a strange bird to be up all night chirping. Then last night it was like a siren in my ear. It would come and go.
I tried to determine when it would start and stop. Was it caused by my breathing? As I would take a breath...it would start and go on for about 5 seconds...then stop. It seemed to get louder the more I concentrated on it. Did the siren's tone coincide with my heart rate? I tried putting my middle finger to my neck to try to determine if it did....it seemed to. Was my blood pressure elevated causing this siren in my ear?
I asked my boyfriend to put his ear on my ear to see if he could hear it too...he tried but couldn't hear anything. Only I could hear it.
My ear aches a little. I've been wearing my earbuds at work to drown out the noise from the people around me so that I can concentrate on my work. I'm hoping that the sirens will go away. I'm starting to hear it during the day as well.
